Construction crews will begin placing concrete traffic barriers after 9 a.m.to cordon off the work area. A single lane of traffic will be maintained at all times, in both directions. Motorists should be aware of transitions and lane changes. The Metrobus stop at Park Road and 14th Street will be relocated temporarily to north of Monroe Street.
