Traffic Control

Your safety and our crews' safety is important to us. Please be patient, drive with caution and obey all construction signs while going through the work zone.
Anticipate Delays

Commuters should plan for up to 30-minute delays due to congestion through the work zone. During daytime working hours, two travel lanes will remain open with reduced speeds.

Lane Shifts and Reductions

Drivers can expect lane shifts and lane widths reduced to 11-feet to allow for daytime work to occur while maintaining two open travel lanes.

Closed Access to BLM Area

Due to earthwork on the west side of the highway, access to the BLM recreation area from Pyramid is prohibited. Alternative accesses include Point View Way (best for vehicles/UTVs) and High Rock Way.

Intermittent Night Work
with Lane Closures

When night work occurs, drivers can expect lane closures. The community will be given advanced notice of night work occurrences.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Access

Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained through the corridor. Obey ped/bike construction route signage, and never walk or ride through an active work zone.

Left Turns Prohibited North of Los Altos Pkwy

Left turns are prohibited between Los Altos Parkway and Golden View Drive until 2025. Neighborhood access is right-in and right-out only.


Closure and Detour Information

Support your local businesses

NDOT and the RTC encourage you to continue to patronize your local businesses during construction. All businesses in the work zone will be accessible at all times. Detour routes are created to help guide you to your destination during a closure.
