Two-way traffic will be used on the northbound lanes during the reconstruction of the southbound lanes beginning on Thursday, July 7, 2022/ Two-way traffic will continue until the southbound lane reconstruction is complete.

The speed limit for the two-way traffic will be reduced to 55 mph.


Work on the project includes cold milling asphalt concrete, installing edge drains, rubblizing concrete, and asphalt concrete resurfacing.
