Anticipated lane closure and work for Route 26

Written on: June 5th, 2015 in Route 26

As a reminder, no lane closure restrictions are allowed on Route 26 during the day time hours until October 1, 2015. Construction activities requiring a lane restriction will occur Monday night through Friday morning from 9:00PM to 8:00AM each night.

Lane shifts consisting of maintaining one travel lane in each direction are allowed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week between the hours of 6:00AM and 6:00PM.

Travel times to and from your destination may be quicker if you use one of the Route 26 Alternate Routes that were constructed prior to the start of the Route 26 Mainline Construction Project. The recently reconstructed roadways include:

• Burbage Road, from Route 17 to Windmill Drive
• Windmill Drive to Route 26 to Central Avenue
• Central Avenue, from Windmill Drive to Beaver Dam Road
• Beaver Dam Road, from Central Avenue to Muddy Neck Road
