Traffic Impacts

  • Traffic has been shifted to the roadway center and shoulder closures are effective. Drivers are advised to reduce speeds and watch for lane shifts.
  • Left-turns are permitted only at signalized intersections. Left-turns are not permitted in mid-block sections over solid double yellow lines. Please be safe and make left-turns into businesses only at traffic lights.
  • Business accesses are being maintained. On-street parking has been eliminated.
  • Sidewalk closures are effective in work zones and detour routes are marked.
