Residents are asked to pay attention to the following:

l As the paving operation progresses, parking along the route will be restricted. Pay attention to "No Parking" signs.

l During construction operations, city streets and driveways intersecting Highway 86 will be blocked off.

l Although one traffic lane in each direction will be open at all times, some delays are expected.

l Advanced warning signs will be placed to inform the drivers about the road work.

l Motorists using Highway 86 are encouraged to use alternate routes.
