There will be a lot of construction activity continuing in the area. Harriet Street is scheduled to close at the south end of the intersection for several weeks. On Monday traffic was routed onto Dickson Avenue and Cherry Street.

Businesses northwest of the intersection may be accessed using their rear entrances off Josephine Street. This includes Big Red Liquors, Citizens Bank, Morgan Insurance Group, Courtland Title & Escrow, and Forguites, Weimer, and Haden, LLC. Signage will be in place.

A little farther north on State Road 39, customers can still get to Brothers and 39 Restaurant using West Mitchell Avenue.

Watch for lane closures and rolling closures on State Road 37 to move equipment and materials. The left lane of southbound S.R. 37 at Egbert Road is expected to close each day 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Rolling closures are expected daily at Henderson Ford Road and will last about 10 minutes. Temporary lane closures are scheduled later this week at Henderson Ford Road and Perry Road and rolling closures Thursday and Friday at Waverly Road.

Prepare for intermittent closures on S.R. 37 near the Grand Valley Boulevard over the next several weeks. Crews are continuing roadwork and painting in the area.

Expect the ramp from S.R. 39 to northbound S.R. 37 to close for a short time at the end of the week. Closures are expected to last a few hours Thursday and Friday night.
