Prior to the opening, the off-ramp will be closed from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday to allow crews to do final roadway striping work. Motorists should use alternate routes during the closure.

The additional left turn lane will allow more vehicles on the offramp during peak travel hours and keep traffic from backing up onto the main highway. The $1.9 million off-ramp improvement project also included the installation of new traffic signals at East Avenue and upgraded sidewalks and curb ramps that meet current Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.
