Beginning Monday, June 26 at 7 a.m., Emery Sapp & Sons is scheduled to begin road work affecting the travel lanes on Conley Road, from near the north Walmart drive entrance to the U.S. Route 63 overpass. Lane shifts will be necessary, and a temporary all-way stop is being added at the north Walmart drive entrance.
Motorists, pedestrians and nonmotorized transportation users are urged to exercise extreme caution when near the work zone and use an alternate route if possible.
This work is part of the Conley Road TDD's East Boulevard Extension project, which will connect Conley Road north of Walmart to Business Loop 70 at its existing terminus near East Boulevard. The final project will not only connect Conley Road to the Business Loop but will eliminate the connections to I70 at the far east end.
During construction of this project, closures, restrictions, lane shifts, etc. will be necessary at various times on Conley Road, Business Loop 70, East Boulevard, Eastland Circle, Eastwood Circle and Mehl Road so check back for updates. The project is scheduled for a Summer 2018 completion.
