Schedule

The county began the design phase in spring 2019. Construction is scheduled to begin in Aug 2021, during daytime hours. Construction is expected to be complete by June 2022.

Traffic impacts

Starting Aug. 16, single-lane closures are expected and will last up to four weeks per intersection. One corner will be constructed at a time per intersection. Multiple work zones will be active on Sunnyside Road at the same time. Crews will work 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. most days, however, lane closures will be needed 24/7 for approximately one week at each corner of the intersection.

Pedestrian access will be provided during construction.
