In an effort to increase traffic safety, construction of a concrete island prohibiting left turns out of Wilbur Avenue onto State Highway 70 is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 16. When construction of the island has been completed, “No Left Turn” signs will be erected and a Visual Message Board will be placed at the site advising motorist of the traffic pattern change. Additionally, the Head Start and Board of Education were advised about the change and will adjust their busing and drop off routes accordingly.
The milling and paving portion of the project will begin either at the end of this week or the beginning of the following week. The project is expect to take two days total to complete. For everyone’s safety, please heed all detour signs and Police Officer instructions in the area during this time.
