Motorists can expect various daily lane closures on both projects, with possible traffic delays and are urged to use caution when driving through the work zone, since crews will be working in close proximity to traffic and should keep the following tips in mind:

Pay attention. Workers and heavy equipment may only be a few feet from passing vehicles.
Be patient. Delays from roadway construction can be frustrating, but it only takes a few extra minutes to slow down for a work zone.
The both projects are scheduled to be completed in by mid-July. Work will take place weather permitting.
