The detour runs from Riverside Drive to State Street and ends at State Route 310.

The detour will remain in effect until the project shuts down for the winter, and be back in the spring. The DOT will be putting up temporary traffic signals and message boards to let people know about the detour.

The DOT says the project is intended to improve pavement conditions and storm drainage, to correct existing and emerging operational problems and safety related deficiencies, as well as to improve pedestrian and bicycle access.
