Freeway construction has started making its mark on Carson Street. This week and next week the northbound lanes of Hwy 395, just past the Spooner turnoff, are closed and traffic is being routed down to the old frontage road.
This is being done so they can dig up the main road and put in a new drainage ditch. The culvert that they are putting under the road will be used to drain flood waters away and prevent water from flowing over the road.
This being Sunday night, the work is almost done for the weekend and they’ll reopen the road for the Monday commute. But next weekend they will be doing it all over again.
So slow down and stay attentive when you’re driving through here.
