Crews will be making drainage and grading repairs that will require the closure of the right shoulder of westbound U.S. 50 from approximately the Chipman Road off-ramp to the U.S. 50 on-ramp.

This work will begin at 2 p.m. on both Tuesday, April 4, and Wednesday, April 5, until approximately 5 p.m. each evening. All work is weather permitting.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and pay attention while driving in work zones. Not all work zones look alike. Work zones can be moving operations, such as striping, patching or mowing. They can also be short-term, temporary lane closures to make quick repairs or remove debris from the roadway.
