Get ready for the new detour! The new detour will become effective Monday, April 30th! It is so important to drive carefully and slowly on the detour route. Please be mindful of animals, and children who are not used to the volume of traffic that will be on the detour route! Please follow the directions of the flaggers and try to move over to give the construction crews as much room as possible.
