Beginning Monday, Dec. 14, U.S. Highway 6 at N. Riverside Drive will experience a lane closure of the southbound outside traffic lane. The lane closure is necessary to facilitate the replacement of a traffic signal pole in the southwest corner of the intersection. It is anticipated the traffic signal pole replacement and traffic signal modifications will be completed and the southbound lane reopened by Tuesday, Dec. 15. 

Motorists are to take note of this construction and to seek another route during this time period. As always, caution should be exercised when traveling through all construction areas.
