Weather permitting, beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, December 21, 2015, Melrose Avenue will be reduced to one lane of alternating traffic just west of the Highway 218 interchange.  Work will be occurring daily at this location from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. through Wednesday, December 23rd and also on Monday, December 28th.  This lane reduction is necessary to facilitate the installation of a water service line to the Johnson County Poor Farm.

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