Drivers are advised that a traffic shift away from the work area will be in place for the area south the Cetti Bay Culvert. This traffic shift will only occur during daylight hours. Drivers are advised to reduce their speeds to the posted limits. Delays and increased travel time should be expected in this construction area.

Drivers are requested to stop behind the painted stop lines and the “Stop Here on Red” signs when waiting for the light to change at the traffic signal.  These lines and signs have been placed so that trucks and buses can have enough room to make the turn at the intersection.
