- 4th Street: BNSF Railroad to Beal Street
- 4th Streeet: Congdon Avenue to 7th Street
- Sky Park Road: 7th Street to White Cloud Road

On all roadway segments, traffic will be maintained on one lane of traffic with flaggers through the construction zone. Please observe the temporary traffic control signs and flaggers. Before the lay down operation begins, the contractor will spray a layer of fresh oil. Please do not drive through the fresh oil.
