Warren County (Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013) – Pavement work will require a lane closure on Interstate 71 tomorrow.

From 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., the right lane of southbound I-71 will be closed near the Fields Ertel Road exit.

Arrow boards and/or signs will be in place to alert motorists of the upcoming lane closure.

To help ensure the safety of the construction workers as well as the traveling public, motorists should remain alert, reduce their speed and watch for stopped traffic while passing through the work zone.
