Remember, as little as six inches of water can lift a vehicle off the road. Do not attempt to drive across a roadway covered with water; you cannot tell how deep the water may be. Do not attempt to walk across a road covered with water; the force of the water is deceptive and could sweep you off of your feet and carry you downstream. If you encounter a roadway covered with water - "Don't drown! Turn Around!"

Watch for flaggers and use caution in all work zones.

"No Parking" indicates that parking will not be allowed along the designated roadways during the hours listed. Violators will be towed at the owner's expense. No parking areas will be designated at least 72 hours before work begins.
