An Advisory has been issued by the Department of Transportation for single and double lane closures of Interstate 684 beginning on Monday, August 27.

DOT crews will be performing maintenance between Exit 8 (Hardscrabble Road) and Exit 4 (Route 172). They will be closing single lanes starting at 6:00pm and then shutting down double lanes at 10:00pm. As long as the weather cooperates, those lanes will be closed until 3:00am.

This road work will be going on from Monday night through Thursday, August 30. If you normally travel in that area in the evening, you might want to find an alternate route because, as you can imagine, there will be extensive delays and if you're like me, ain't nobody got time for that.

Something else to remember, if you are caught speeding through a work zone, you will not only get hit with a double fine but if you collect two or more violations for speeding through a work zone, you could get your driver's license suspended.
