The east-bound, right-hand turn lane of Elmwood Ave. (at Mt. Hope) is scheduled to reopen on Sept. 29, but the lane closest to the median will close at that time. One east-bound lane of traffic will remain open until Oct. 30.
On Sept. 29, two lanes along the center median of Mt. Hope (between Crittenden and Elmwood) will close for five weeks so that work on the median can be completed. This will reduce traffic to one-way in each direction.
Mt. Hope Cemetery fence work was delayed but now scheduled for installation starting Sept. 28. The work should be finished by mid-October.
Westfall Road is now open to two-way traffic on the south side of the roadway. Sawgrass Drive is also now open in both directions. There may be intermittent lane closures for topsoil placement.
On Sept. 27, from 7 p.m. through 6 a.m. the following morning, Crittenden (between East Drive and Mt. Hope) will close completely overnight to complete work. All work will finished by the morning of Sept. 28. Drivers will want to identify alternate routes to steer clear of Crittenden during this time.
Castleman Drive will get speed bumps to slow impatient drivers through this residential neighborhood. Bumps should be installed over the next four weeks. More information on this will be forthcoming.
The new ‘Diverging Diamond’ traffic pattern is expected to be completed by Oct. 15. During the weekend of Sept. 29, 590 Exit 1 ramps will be closed the weekend to complete work at the location.
Drivers are urged to consider alternate routes during peak traffic times of 7:30 to 9 a.m. and 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Any questions or concerns about any current projects can be directed to Shawn Casey at 275-2082.
