Two-way traffic will be permitted up to 31 Marilyn Drive, no eastbound traffic beyond this point. Eastbound traffic can use the entrance at 709 Woolwich Street (Riverside Park). Please follow posted signs for safety. A full road closure is not planned; however, delays should be expected.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.). Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property.
