posted Jun 11, 2019, 1:42 PM by Leona Oceania   [ updated Jun 18, 2019, 4:59 AM ]

There will be construction on Route One (between the Veteran's Home and Scarborough Grounds) in the coming week and a half that will cause the following traffic disruptions: 

    - On Thursday, June 13th, one northbound lane will be closed, hopefully just for the morning. If time allows, the construction and lane closure will then switch to the southbound lane, inclusive of a lane closure, if needed. 

    - On Friday, June 14th, construction in the southbound line will either continue or begin, again necessitating the closure of one southbound lane. There will be work done on Sawyer Road as well, which will affect traffic flow for a short period of time. 

    - Route One construction will continue June 18th - 21st, beginning with the northbound lanes. Lane closures will occur during this time as needed. 

As always, re-route your travel whenever possible to avoid this construction and possible delays.
