  • Smetana Road – There will be various road closures throughout 2020 on Smetana Road between Nolan Drive and Feltl Court. Look for posted detour signs.
  • Highway 62 – Traffic lanes have been shifted to the south side to accommodate tunnel construction on the north side of the highway. This will be in place through 2020. 
  • Trunk Highway 62 – Construction of the light rail tunnel under Trunk Highway 62 will require periodic lane closures and traffic shifts.
