The lane closures will allow construction crews to safely continue to mill the road, make repairs and place a new surface on the roadway.
Speed limits have been reduced by 10 mph through the active work zones. Drivers are advised to pay attention and slow down as they enter the work area for their safety and the safety of the workers.
