Route 1/11 (Port Authority Road)
There are no anticipated construction related impacts to traffic flow this week.

Route 4 Ylig Bridge (Yona)

The temporary bridge and detour remains open to traffic with a posted 15 MPH speed limit. Motorists are advised to observe the posted speed limit and all construction signs.
