Week of July 31: Preparation for rock scaling work underway. Expect up to 15-minute delays during weekday work hours for installation of concrete barriers and road protection near mile marker 229. During work hours flaggers are controlling traffic in this one-lane section. The concrete barriers will stay up for the duration of the rock scaling work with temporary traffic signals controlling the one-lane area after work hours and on weekends. Signals are approximately 1800 feet apart. Expect short delays for alternating single-lane traffic after work hours and on weekends.

Week of August 7: Half-hour delays begin during weekday work hours. Expect short delays after-hours and on weekends to accommodate alternating single-lane traffic.

Description of work: Rock scaling work is scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 7. When rock scaling is underway, both lanes will be closed for roughly 20 minutes. Any debris that has fallen on the roadway over the containment system/barriers will then be cleared with equipment. When it is clear, the flaggers will send traffic from one direction, followed by the other.

Traveling in the early morning and early evening can help you avoid the half-hour delays. Work hours can begin 2 hours after sunrise and must end two hours before sunset.

Construction will occur on weekdays only. No weekend or holiday work.
