Lane Reconfiguration
Construction began on Monday August 19 for a lane widening/reconfiguration project on Buckingham Road at Lavon Drive.
Expect closures between of 8:30 a.m. and 4:40 p.m. Monday through Friday.
This project is expected to be completed by mid-September.
This new lane configuration will better accommodate the eastbound traffic volumes on Buckingham, as up to 600 vehicles per hour turn left onto Lavon Drive but fewer than 100 turn right.
