Lexington Avenue traffic will head westbound on K-10 to the Edgerton Road exit and then loop around to head back on eastbound K-10.
Traffic will be directed through the project work zone via concrete safety barrier, cones and signage. Drivers should expect major delays during peak commute times and may wish to use alternate routes throughout the project duration.
