The southbound Lost Nation Road ramp to westbound State Route 2 is closed, however access is maintained utilizing the northbound ramp to State Route 2 westbound. Reeves Road is closed at Lost Nation Road and the detour route is set utilizing Hurricane Drive.
Ramp restrictions and detours will extend for much of the 2009 construction season.
