Motorists traveling the U.S. 58, Holland Road corridor can expect traffic shifts as part of a widening project underway. 

Suffolk Public Works Department advises the switch in traffic pattern is set to take place between the U.S. 13 Bypass and Grove Avenue. Westbound traffic will move north onto the newly constructed lanes, allowing the eastbound traffic to shift onto these vacated lanes, according to a department news release. This will allow the contractor to work on the south side of the road.  

The contractor expects to make the shift as early as Monday, March 27, but the date could change depending on weather.

The newly aligned Northbrook Avenue also opens to traffic during this switch. However, there is not an operational traffic signal at the intersection at this time. The signal at Grove Avenue is to remain operational until this summer when the signal at Northbrook Avenue replaces it.

The traffic pattern for the western part of the project, from Grove Avenue to the Center Point Industrial Estate, will not change, according to public works officials.

A 35 mph speed limit in effect throughout the entire three-mile work zone.
