The closures will be conducted over three nights: Monday, June 19; Tuesday, June 20; and Wednesday, June 21.  The short-term closures will take place between the hours of 12 midnight and 4 am, so as to disrupt as little traffic as possible.  The work will be completed and the road re-opened early Thursday morning.
