Will the highway be closed during construction?

No. Temporary pavement will be installed on one side of the project area. We are still determining which side to place the temporary pavement on. The temporary lanes will be 11 feet wide, which is narrower than the current lane width. Commercial traffic and other large vehicles will have a commercial detour route.
