Road construction now underway for a widening and resurfacing project along U.S. 77 between Newkirk and E. Home Road south of the casinos.
Motorists will notice workers in the right-of-way of US-77 between E. Home Rd. and E. Fork Rd. for initial work zone set up including building construction access for property owners within the work area. Starting in mid-May, northbound and southbound US-77 will be narrowed to one lane with temporary traffic signals in half-mile segments between E. Home Rd. and E. Fork Rd. Motorists will need to use caution in the area. As of Monday, speed limit is reduced to 55 mph in the work zone.
The project is scheduled to be finished by Spring 2021.
