Weather permitting, beginning on Wednesday, July 29, the westbound left turn lane on Melrose Avenue, at its intersection with Melrose Court will be closed. However, turning traffic will be maintained. This turning lane closure is necessary to facilitate pavement repair in the area. It is anticipated the work will be completed by Friday, July 31. 

Motorists are to take note of this construction and to allow extra travel time as delays may occur. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
