Overpass work

overpass work

Stephanie Hagenaars

Construction on the overpass started yesterday and already was causing long waits as traffic is reduced to one lane. Pylons were laid out and vehicles diverted by midday, with temporary traffic lights installed to assist in the flow of traffic. As of 3 p.m., eastbound traffic was backed up to just past Second Street while westbound traffic was lined up to about School Road. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of August.
