LANE CLOSURES & TRAFFIC SWITCH ON ROUTE 87

AT TAYLOR STREET THIS WEEKEND

One lane will be closed each direction on Route 87 at Taylor Street tonight and tomorrow night in order to prepare for the northbound lanes to shift 50 feet to the west. One lane will remain open in each direction.

Tonight’s closure for paving operations will begin at 11 PM and reopen at 11 AM on Saturday. At that time, motorists will be traveling a new lane configuration parallel to the southbound lanes, which were moved west earlier this month. Saturday’s closure for striping operations will occur between 11 PM and 6 AM.

Delays should be minimal, but motorists are advised to allow extra time for travel or use alternate routes. Additionally, motorists are advised to pay attention to signs and to slow down in the work zone to protect themselves and workers.
