Beginning Friday, both left turn lanes of northbound Ninth Street E. will close from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for crews to complete the work. The remaining two lanes will provide a left-turn only lane and a lane for right turns and through traffic. This work is expected to last one day, weather permitting. Traffic will remain reduced for five days following the work to allow the new concrete to cure. During that time, the western left turn lane will reopen and traffic will utilize a dedicated left turn lane, one through lane and one lane for through traffic and right turns.
