Construction will take place from January 2018 until early to mid-2020. During that time, intermittent lane closures may be necessary. ​In an effort to minimize inconvenience and traffic delays, these lane closures will take place outside of the peak traffic hours of 7 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. on weekdays. We appreciate your patience as we construct this project.​
