The location of the work on US 68 will be between Coghill Lane (MP 17.542) and the Brooklyn Bridge (MP 20.058).  This will be a mobile operation with traffic control devices and flaggers directing the traveling public. 

Motorists traveling this route should expect lane closures and intermittent delays due to the sign installation project.
