    On Tuesday, July 5, crews will mill the asphalt in the southbound (west side) lanes of Highland Road between Valleyview Drive and Hwy 1 in preparation for the water and sewer main work. Traffic will be moved to the northbound (east side) lanes of Highland Road (one lane each direction). Traffic control personnel will be in place to assist pedestrians and motorists.

    The remainder of the week, crews will begin work on the sanitary main replacement, starting near Flamingo Road working south on Highland Road. Note that from July 4 through July 15, the Hwy 1 eastbound off-ramp and the westbound left turn exit to Highland Road will be closed to all traffic to allow for this work adjacent the highway.

    While every attempt will be made to minimize the impact on residents, businesses, motorists, pedestrians, and transit users during construction, delays and congestion are inevitable and should be expected. Thank you for your understanding.
