Good morning,

Construction crews are gearing up to return and finish the work that was not able to get completed last fall due to the early and unexpected cold temperatures we all experienced.  Work is expected to resume on April 1st.  Work operations will require lane closures on Highway 151 as well as Highway 18.  Some ramp closures at the Highway 23 and Highway 18 interchange are expected to safely finish the work in those areas as well.  Please be on the lookout for our message boards to alert when those operations will be underway.

SAFETY 1st:

Please slow down and drive with caution through all work zones!
