The contractor is continuing to make good progress, however they did not get quite as far as expected today. They will be continuing on Woodland Drive tomorrow with the expectation of reaching Alta Vista Drive.

Although some cars were allowed through today, to help the project move faster and ensure the safety of the workers and drivers, please have your cars moved out of the area before 8:00AM tomorrow. Please do not expect the road to be open after 8:00AM. The road will be reopened as soon as it can be.
