TRAFFIC ALERTS

  • Second Hwy. 43 through lane opens:  On Monday, May 9 the northbound through lane of Hwy. 43 will open, carrying traffic on the lower level of the interchange. Technically, the new lane will be used by southbound traffic, because southbound traffic has been using the northbound lane in recent months.  On Monday, both through lanes will be open for the first time, which will help reduce congestion on the upper level of the interchange. Expect delays during the traffic change from 9 am to 4 pm.
  • May 20 Bridge Closure: A bridge closure is planned from 6 am on Friday, May 20 until as late as 6 am on Saturday, May 21 to allow the contractor to install pre-stressed concrete girders for the north half of the east approach. The closure will impact motor vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians.
