The small, but crucial piece of Highland Boulevard near Main Street is now open to through traffic.

The road blocks have come down and the street lights are going back up.

Be advised that many people will still be taking the detour until they realize Highland is open from Main Street. We encourage folks to take it easy through that intersection until all work is complete.

BE ADVISED: Since there is now regular traffic flow on Highland, be extra careful when turning from Ellis. (We've gotten used to little southbound traffic!)
