Weather permitting, beginning on Monday, Aug. 3, pavement repair work will occur on Melrose Avenue near its intersection with Evashevski Drive.  This work will necessitate lane shifts to accommodate the work, but two-way traffic will be maintained. It is anticipated that the work will be completed and normal traffic will resume by Wednesday, Aug. 5.

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.
