Clifton Blvd. traffic will be detoured north onto West Blvd. to access the Shoreway via the Lake Avenue exit ramp which will be converted for two-way use.
The mainline will also be restricted to one lane in each direction between Lake Avenue and West 73rd Street for approximately 25 daysduring this work.
