Construction of the Green Valley Road overcrossing above Interstate 80 is nearing completion and the state Department of Transportation announced several changes to traffic patterns to allow construction crews to continue work.
Northbound traffic on the Green Valley Road overcrossing above westbound and eastbound I-80 will be routed starting Friday onto the new overcrossing. Southbound traffic will continue to use the existing lanes on the existing overcrossing.
The temporary configuration will allow crews to continue work on new approach lanes and prepare for demolition of the old overcrossing. This configuration will be in place for about six weeks until the new overcrossing is opened northbound and southbound.
