Route 42 will be restricted to one lane of traffic utilizing alternating one-way traffic along Route 42 for some of the construction work and will be closed to all traffic for a 7 day period between Whispering Hollow Court and Mountain Road to complete removal and replacement of the structure.
All work will occur between the hours of 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
Advance notice will be provided once the actual date of the full closure is known. A preliminary schedule indicates that the full closure will occur in late October early November. A posted detour will be utilized during this time to route traffic around the construction site using state roads.
Motorists are urged to map out an alternate route prior to the complete road closure occurring.
