Officials said Wednesday that the single lane of southbound traffic will return to its normal location on Nov. 12, with road resurfacing already done.

As crews continue work, traffic will continue to remain in one lane in each direction as they complete the project.

Finishing touches include removing median ramps, doing road striping, median cable installation, and removing a precast barrier wall in the area over the next few weeks.
