On Monday and Tuesday of next week (November 18th and 19th) there will be roadside paving along Gorham Road. (Prepping and paving driveways) While this will affect traffic flow, the effected areas will be far shorter than standard road construction.

All that said, if you can take a different route, please do. If you cannot, please plan accordingly for probable (although minor) delays.
