Other closures include: Thursday, August 18 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. southbound right lane; switch southbound, Bluff Street on-ramp traffic to new slip ramp. Friday, August 19 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. southbound right lane for barrier to be moved. The new traffic patterns will remain in effect for several months. Motorists are reminded of the speed limit of 55 miles per hour, with fines doubled for speeding in work zones. No changes will be made to the northbound Bluff Street on-ramp at this time.
