UPDATE 03/21/2014: The second phase of the traffic shift planned for Thursday night into Friday morning did not occur as planned because of mechanical issues. Crews will resume project tonight into Saturday morning.


Some work has been going on this week to prepare for the big Verona Road reconstruction project, but the major impact will be felt with lane-shifts Thursday morning. Steve Theisen of the DOT says southbound traffic has been moved. Another shift will take place tonight, with northbound traffic moved southbound. It all means lots of delays, and the incentive to find alternate routes. The 175 million dollar Verona Road project is expected to last 5 to 7 years.
