Local traffic will have access to Ridge Road throughout the project.
Flaggers will direct traffic through the project. Motorists are urged to use caution, prepare to stop and watch for work crews and heavy equipment throughout the area.
Asphalt paving work will be performed during daylight hours only with heavy equipment maintenance work performed at night.
