Saturday work starts tomorrow
Starting tomorrow, Saturday, September 10, crews will be working on Fulton Road between Piner High School and Appletree Drive. Both lanes of traffic will be impacted to accommodate ongoing construction. Traffic control measures will be in place from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Please note that work is also tentatively scheduled for consecutive Saturdays for approximately the next four-to-six weeks. Please be advised that traffic delays are likely to occur in the impacted areas when traffic control measures are in place. Motorists should consider taking alternate routes when possible.

Heads up: upcoming traffic control – Piner Road/Fulton Road
Traffic control measures are tentatively scheduled to be in place at the Fulton Road/Piner Road intersections within the next 2-3 weeks, to accommodate construction work in the roadway. Once underway, this work is anticipated to last for up to 3-4 days. During that time, there will be traffic delays at the intersection.

We will provide an update on the schedule for this work as soon as more definite information is available.
