The closure will begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 5 and last through 4 p.m. on Friday, June 7.  While in effect, drivers are asked to watch for and obey all traffic control signs an use caution while traveling through the work zone.  Delays are expected, so commuters should plan for extra time or look for another way to get to their destinations. While the last day for the project is Friday, delays could extend the project schedule.
