THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION PROVIDES SOME ADDITIONAL DETAILS ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT EPA PROJECT:

• Strict traffic control on Walker Road six (6) days a week utilizing flaggers and pilot cars.

• At least one road closure of Walker Road for 7 to 9 hours (date to be determined) near the junction of Walker & Eagle Road for installation of a new water culvert under Walker Road.
