Traffic at the Togcha and Talofofo Bridges continues to be restricted to one lane for both northbound and southbound traffic.  Temporary stop lights are in place with timing monitored and adjusted to minimize delays.

Installation of pile foundations on the permanent Ylig Bridge on Route 4 will start on November 14.  Due to the proximity of piles to travel lanes, and vibrations generated from this work, intermittent traffic delays and lane closures will be required for the safety of motorists traveling in the area.  The temporary bridge and detour is open to traffic with a posted 15 MPH speed limit. Motorists are requested to observe the posted speed limit and all construction signs.

Route 7A
Construction on the Route 7A project will be extended toward Route 8.  Traffic will be limited to one-way westbound from Route 8 to Route 4 while access to businesses and streets along the Route 33 will remain open.
