Businesses remain open
Temporary, lane, sidewalk and driveway closures map happen from time-to-time, but access to businesses will be maintained at all times.

Regional traffic will be kept open to through traffic during construction. However, throughout construction there will be temporary lane restrictions which will result in delays. Drivers can avoid delays by using alternative routes.
