Access to this area will be extremely limited with multiple closures and detours. Again, this would be a great time to follow the Governor's stay at home orders. Please avoid the area, follow the detours (NOT YOUR GPS) and plan alternate routes. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
