During the weekend construction, the signal at Scholls Ferry Road and Roy Rogers Road will also be shut down when work is being performed in or near the intersection.

Additional improvements include bicycle and pedestrian facilities, street lighting and utility line upgrades. The project is funded through the County’s Major Streets Transportation Improvement Program (MSTIP). Construction is anticipated to be completed by December 31, 2014.
