  • Winchester Drive
  • Corbitt Drive
  • Francisco Drive
  • Marin Drive
  • Oak Grove Avenue between Winchester Drive and Rollins Road

Construction will begin this week and is expected to continue through March 2019. As always, the work schedule is dependent on weather, holidays, and other unanticipated delays.

  • Construction hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Left hand turns will be restricted within construction areas.
  • Temporary parking restrictions will be posted at least 48 hours in advance.
