Maintenance crews from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will be creating a new left turn lane onto Louella Road Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 15 and 16.
The crews will have one-way alternating traffic for installation of the new turn-lane from 8 p.m.-6 a.m. both days.
Drivers are encouraged to plan extra travel time to reach their destinations, especially during morning hours.
The work is weather-dependent, state officials note, and could be rescheduled.
The new turn lane is the result of a WSDOT cost-effective effort to improve traffic flow and reduce the potential for collisions, state officials said.
