Northwest side drivers should expect delays this morning and plan altrernative routes to get through the intersection of Shannon and Magee. Constructions crews will be laying down new pavement in the intersection.
People that have driven through that intersection know what it's like getting through the construction, so plan for extra time to get through.
Northbound Shannon road and southbound Magee road are closed for the day, and drivers can expect to be re-routed and heavy delays all day until the pavement is fully dry.
The work is the latest step in a long term project of improvements that include widening from two to four lanes, building a median, and adding bike lanes and sidewalks. This benefits the stretch of road between Thornydale and Oracle.
The work is expected to be completed by 6 p.m. this evening.
