Work is expected to begin Wednesday, April 20. Motorists should expect lane closures and long delays, and seek alternate routes when possible.
The goal of this project is to complete roadway reconstruction and widening of Eola Road, south of Montgomery Road to Keating Drive, plus improvements to each intersection. The 2-lane road will be replaced with 5 lanes, including a center left-turn lane, plus an 8-foot bike path on the north side and a 5-foot sidewalk on the south.
