“Motorists and cyclists are advised to allow extra time to travel through the work zone and to obey all traffic personnel on site during the project,” said design supervisor, Tyler Figgitt, in a news release. “The city apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. We thank their public for the patience while construction takes place.”

The contractor will be performing the works between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., with traffic periodically reduced to one alternating lane to facilitate the work.
