Commuters are advised to anticipate long delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes (Cornell Road or Highway 26). This work is weather dependent.

Striping work is scheduled to occur between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night. During this work, a single lane of traffic in each direction will generally remain open on Evergreen Road; however, delays of 20 minutes or more may be experienced.
