JOHNSBURG – Drivers can expect temporary lane changes in downtown Johnsburg this week as crews install the final sections of storm sewer and new roadway base.

The work will be primarily between Riverside Drive and Route 31, according to an alert sent out by HR Green, the engineering firm handling the Johnsburg Road project.

The foundations for the lightpoles along Johnsburg Road in the downtown area also will be installed this week.

The work is part of the ongoing effort to widen Johnsburg Road from Route 31 to just west of the St. Johns Avenue and Chapel Hill Road intersection to three lanes with one lane in each direction and a center lane for turning.

Traffic signals also will be installed at Riverside Drive and Spring Grove Road, and the hills west of Riverside Drive have been lowered to improve driver visibility.
