|The $1.1 million project will reconstruct the existing two-way stop intersection to a signalized intersection with dedicated turn lanes and new lighting.|
At least one lane in each direction will remain open throughout construction, anticipated to be completed in October.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time when traveling through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
