Ditching being done on the Lyford Road (Route 11)

Submitted by Izzy on September 1, 2016 - 3:21pm

From Milo Police Department:

You'll be seeing this device if you're traveling the Lyford Road over the next several days.
MDOT will be ditching and these traffic control devices are there to keep the workers and drivers safe.
Please don't go around the flag if you see no traffic coming your way.
Doing so is a violation and being in a construction zone doubles the fines.
Let's keep our DOT workers safe.
