Warren County (Tuesday, April 26, 2011) –
State Route 63 at Interstate 75 will be closed to all through traffic from 10 p.m. Friday, April 29 to 7 a.m. Saturday, April 30 while crews erect signal supports for the SR 63/Interstate 75 interchange. The road will be closed with the use of the city of Monroe police department.
Northbound I-75 traffic will be able to exit to eastbound SR 63; southbound I-75 traffic will be able to exit to westbound SR 63. Eastbound SR 63 traffic will be able to access southbound I-75 and westbound SR 63 traffic will be able to access to northbound I-75. Traffic can continue on north or southbound I-75 and use the next available exit to turn around.
Once the supports are erected, traffic signals will be mounted to them for use as temporary traffic control. The permanent signals will be installed throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday, May 2 and 3. During this time, the single right lane closures on SR 63 will remain in place.
The bridge will be closed again for the final attachment of the permanent signals from 10 p.m. Tuesday, May 3 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 4. Once the permanent signals are installed, it will be possible to open the second left turn lane from eastbound SR 63 to northbound I-75.
All work is contingent upon the weather.
Arrow boards and signs will be in place prior to the work zone to alert motorists of the upcoming lane closure. To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
