Permanent striping and roadway markings will be placed in approximately two weeks, allowing the latest pavement application adequate time to cure. As the contractor works to finish up any remaining median or shoulder work, intermittent lane closures can be expected. The speed limit within the construction area is 30 mph. Please drive defensively and watch for construction vehicles.
