General Notes:

·         Please note that these improvements will require daily daytime lane closures with the use of flaggers for many of the operations that will be performed. 

·         Please note that there will be several roadway closures with associated detours during the construction.  Notification will be made before these noted closures are put in place with details on the detour route and anticipated durations.

·         Please use extreme caution when traveling through and/or near the construction zone and please slow down.  We apologize for any inconveniences that may occur and thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this construction project.
