Original Story - During the weeks of February 12 and February 19, 2018, final traffic improvements will be made on Ridge Avenue as part of the Emerson, Ridge and Green Bay Corridor Project. Work will take place on weekdays, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Improvements include the installation of a mast arm pole on Ridge Avenue north of Clark Street with overhead signs directing motorists to use the proper lane as they approach the Emerson, Ridge and Green Bay intersection.
