Bayfield School District began road improvements on County Road 501 this week as part of the new Bayfield Elementary School project. The school district's contractor will add turn lanes at Sossaman Road and the Bayfield High School entrance. The work began July 10 and will extend through August 21.
Crews will work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Traffic may be reduced to one lane while work is in progress. Drivers should anticipate delays of up to 15 minutes, although every attempt will be made to minimize delays during peak traffic times. Drivers are encouraged to allow a little extra travel time and to drive with caution through the work zone for their own safety and that of the work crews.
