There will be temporary road and lane closures in order to perform this work safely; however, access will be maintained for local traffic and emergency vehicles. Pedestrian access, as well as access to driveways, will be maintained. If there is a need to work in front of a particular driveway, construction will be coordinated with that business or homeowner on an as needed basis.
