Motorists traveling through the Tri-Intersection construction area are reminded to not block the intersections of the side streets and stop behind the painted stop lines and the “Stop Here on Red” signs at the intersection. These lines and signs have been placed so that trucks and buses have enough room to safely make turns at the intersection.
All businesses fronting the construction area remain open and are accessible during construction.
