Southbound traffic in the left lane has crossed over into a contraflow lane on the northbound side of Dryden Road, ODOT said.

It began on Monday and will last until May.

Vehicles in the contraflow lane will not have access to exit on E. Dixie Drive.

Crews will be completing work on the interior median and reconstruction of the southbound travel lanes. The new traffic pattern will maintain three lanes of traffic in each direction, according to ODOT.
