The Department of Transportation will make changes to the traffic pattern at the intersection of Cave Neck Road and Route 1. In preparation for the change, work will begin at 8 p.m., Monday, Aug. 5, and will be completed by 5 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 6.
The new traffic pattern will require all motorists on Cave Neck Road approaching Route 1 to turn right to go south on Route 1. Motorists wanting to go north on Route 1 from Cave Neck Road will turn right onto southbound Route 1 and then make a U-turn at a crossover south of the Cave Neck Road intersection.
Route 1 northbound motorists will still be able to turn left onto Cave Neck Road. Route 1 southbound motorists will not be able to make a U-turn at the Cave Neck Road intersection as part of these restrictions.
Variable message boards are posted to advise motorists of the upcoming lane closures.
