A project to re-pave Hwy. 246 from Entrance Road to the Hwy. 154/246 Intersection is scheduled to begin Sunday night, July 14.

This paving will take place during the overnight hours Sunday night through Friday morning from 8 pm to 6 am. Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control within the project area.

Electronic message boards have been activated to advise motorists about this roadwork. Motorists can expect a delay not to exceed 15 minutes.
