Work will consist of concrete patching, ultra thin hot mix overlay to prolong the structural integrity of the existing concrete pavement, and a surface overlay to provide a durable pavement that will improve the ride quality and efficiently extend the life of the roadway at minimal cost.

During holidays and special events, when traffic volumes are expected to greatly increase, work restrictions will be imposed to minimize impacts on the traveling public. 

Motorists are advised to slow down in work zones and expect delays.
