The Strawberry Hill Road and Route 28 East Sewer Expansion Projects are ongoing.

As construction progresses, traffic management plans will adapt to support a safe working environment, while also addressing local traffic needs.
Current road closures can also be tracked via mobile device using the Waze app or Google Maps.

We get it, changing traffic patterns and moving work zones can be frustrating. Please be patient as construction plans are fluid. Changes to active construction locations are dependent on multiple factors including weather. The best way to stay informed on changing traffic patterns is by reviewing real-time road closures and detours via the Waze App or directly on browser-based Waze Live Map located at:
