Crews will begin to switch traffic around midnight, and intend to have this completed by 8 a.m. on Wednesday. (Concrete barrier work for the lane shift will continue on Wednesday night and into Thursday.) Motorists are strongly advised to drive slowly and stay alert for shifts in lanes and crews working.
