Milling and paving operations will be performed on the right hand lane of eastbound Commonwealth Boulevard from the entrance at Liberty Fair Mall to Liberty Street; the right hand lane of northbound Memorial Boulevard from the City limits to 1011 Memorial Boulevard; and Liberty Street from Dillard Street through the intersection with Commonwealth Boulevard.

During construction, motorists and affected residents can expect traffic delays.  Newly paved roads and slurry seal applications cannot be driven on for approximately 30 minutes during the curing process.  Construction crews will be restricting access to these newly paved areas during this time.  Residents are encouraged to avoid these areas during paving and curing operations and to pay strict attention to temporary construction signs that may be placed in work areas.
