One to two lanes will be closed in both directions between Renton Road and North Road starting as early as Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Roadwork in the southbound direction is scheduled from 9 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. and in the northbound direction from 7:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. Motorists are advised that work may begin earlier if the traffic volume is low.
