Hi everyone! Here's a brief excerpt from my upcoming piece today on the "Little Blue" project. The story will cover the plans for the two parts of the project, the plans for cell coverage in the construction zone for sitting traffic, and the immediate and future impacts/benefits of construction.

Does anyone have any thoughts, concerns or plans for the upcoming April 19 closures?


Here’s what to know

Location: Mile points 123—127

Closures: Full roadway closures will be Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. 

Full roadway closures will occur through the night Monday–Thursday 7:30 p.m. – 6:30 a.m. 

Plan your travel around the opening windows and be prepared to queue at designated areas.

Weekends will allow for full passageway with no restrictions or obstructions from the construction crew.

Rumble strips are being put in place to slow drivers down as they approach the sharp turns. 

When open during the week, the road could be brought down to one lane, such as near the bridge on the west end of the project.
