his will allow crews to place hot mix for the final surfacing, which will tie the direct connector into current roadwork. Traffic will still be able to access I-27 southbound from the frontage road.
Crews also will be paving the southbound lanes on the I-27 frontage road at the 26th Avenue bridge. As a result, various lanes will be closed on Saturday. After that, motorists can anticipate a series of traffic pattern changes over the next few weeks as these projects near completion, which is expected within the next 30 days.
For motorists traveling US 60/US 87 in Canyon, be advised that crews will be placing a multi-polymer overlay on the northbound connector Saturday.
