Because of this work, drivers should expect traffic to be down to a single lane with flaggers in the roadway providing traffic control for a portion of the week while the contractor makes the improvements to the roadway. However, impacts should be minimal as most of the work is expected to take place off the roadway.

Pumping Station Road remains closed and separate detours for passenger and commercial vehicles should remain in place.
