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 will revert to two-way traffic after Nov. 30, when construction shuts down for the winter. Until then, through-traffic has been switched over to the south side of the road.
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.
