  • Sidewalks will be closed for several blocks at a time while under construction.
  • Pedestrians traffic will be detoured to the nearest block that is not under construction.
  • The outside traffic lane closest to the sidewalk will be closed through the work zone.
  • Side streets that intersect the work zone will be closed at times. Closures will be limited to two consecutive streets at a time to help maintain access.
  • Work may occur on Saturdays and at night on occasion.
Slow for the Cone Zone. Better Roads ahead.
