Eastbound traffic will be shifted north, with both directions of traffic maintained in the existing westbound lanes. This traffic pattern will remain in place through Summer 2024 as part of widening the route and reconstructing the railroad bridge over US 36/SR 37.

U.S. Route 23


Two lanes in each direction are being maintained on U.S. 23 for a culvert replacement project between SR 315 and Meeker Way. Stratford Road is closed at U.S. 23, with traffic being detoured via Meeker Way. Additional impacts include shoulder and median closures on U.S. 23. Starting July 28 U.S. 23 will be reduced to one lane in each direction for 14 days.

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. Remember, move over or slow down.
