State Route 178 Widening Project

July 31 - August 7, 2015

Motorists traveling State Route 178 are advised to anticipate delays in the vicinity of Alfred Harrell Highway/Comanche Drive next week, August 3-7. Pre-construction utility work for the State Route 178 Widening project will require one-way traffic control in this area while potholing operations are underway. This work is expected to take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., daily.

The traffic control, with intermittent flagging, will affect both directions of traffic on State Route 178. Motorists who must travel through this area should anticipate delays, potentially lasting up to five minutes, and are advised to allow extra time to reach their destinations.

Utility companies continue work to relocate lines along State Route 178, from Canteria Drive to Miramonte Drive. Work will take place during daytime hours. Traffic control and lane closures will be set up in the area as necessary.
