SR 79 traffic shift in Vernon

North and southbound State Road 79 traffic will be transitioned to the newly constructed southbound roadway from Pompey Avenue to Cook Circle in Washington County Friday, July 24. The transition allows crews to continue reconstruction of the northbound travel lanes. Advance warning message boards and additional signage will assist in directing traffic through the area.

All planned construction activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Motorists are reminded to pay attention to the posted speed limit of 45 mph when traveling through the construction area and watch for construction equipment entering and exiting the roadway. Speeding fines are doubled when workers are present.
