March 6, 2020 Friday Report
Pier construction will be taking place near Purgatory Creek Park. The innermost lanes both north and south on Prairie Center Drive between Technology Drive and Singletree Lane are closed until mid-April.
Starting this month, drivers on Flying Cloud Drive between Eden Road and Valley View Road will experience four phases of different traffic impacts – specifically lane reductions and closures – as crews build LRT infrastructure along the northwest side of the roadway.
