Traffic Impacts

Motorists can expect intermittent daytime single-lane closures during off-peak hours on Route 50 and Gallows Road.

In addition, there will be nighttime multiple-lane closures during off-peak hours on Route 50 and Gallows Road.  These will include the closure of two or more of the ramps at the interchange.  When these ramps are closed, a signed detour route will be provided to direct traffic.

At least one lane of traffic will be open at all times on both Route 50 and Gallows Road. Access will be provided at all times to properties within the project limits.
