Work will be performed between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

What to Expect

A crane will be in place in the existing guideway work zone east of Pharmacy Ave to facilitate shelter installation.

Noise and lighting from construction equipment and vehicles can be expected.

The east side crosswalk will remain closed for the duration of the work.

Eastbound traffic will be limited to one left turn lane and one shared through and right turn lane. 

One eastbound lane will be available east of Pharmacy Ave.

The westbound left turn movement will be prohibited.
