Lane Shifts Planned for Wright Street Work

Part of the ongoing construction of Wright Street will require lane shifts to properly continue
reconstruction of the street and utilities. Beginning Friday, Sept. 1 several lane shifts will be
incorporated to allow placement of sanitary sewer utilities. This will involve one way traffic with
the aid of the temporary traffic signals at their current locations. Traffic will shift from the south
side to the north side and back to the south side.

Once complete with the sanitary sewer reconstruction the traffic will be shifted for one way
travel on the north side of Wright Street. This will be the start of Phase 3 work of this project.
The public is advised to use caution as travel on the north side of Wright Street will be through
the north side of the new roundabout. This work is anticipated to start on Tuesday, Sept. 5.

The public is reminded to pay close attention to all traffic control signage, lane divider barrels
and cones and be aware of all construction workers and equipment in the construction zone.
Hebert Construction Company is the general contractor for this project.
