Bringing it down to one Westbound lane between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM and sections of one Eastbound lane.

Update #1 — May 29, 2014; 2:46 PM

The following email was forwarded to me today that gives a bit more information.

I am the Operations Manager of construction in the Utility Dept. overseeing this project. I am not sure what the Hills & Heights post stated or what each TV station reported but our construction sequence beginning later today is to close sections of the inside Eastbound lane from Powhite Parkway- East 24 hrs a day.

During construction activities the inside Westbound lane will be closed between the hours of 7:30 am to 4 pm. If you have any questions or comments please let me know.
