  • The closures will not overlap
  • Pilot cars will be present to direct alternating traffic flows during paving operations
  • Motorists can expect delays up to 15 minutes (depending on time of day)
  • Intermittent lane and shoulder closures may exist within the entire project corridor (CR 35 to CR 17) during shouldering work
