As with all projects of this nature, the work will be done weather permitting, so in the case of inclement weather, there could possibly be delays or an extension of the scheduled work times/days.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
