WHERE: Westbound State Highway (SH) 170 frontage road and Parish Lane
Motorists will experience a change in the traffic pattern in the westbound direction of SH 170 between SH 114 and Roanoke Road starting on Thursday, February 9th. Currently all westbound traffic from SH 114 going to SH 170 is forced to exit to Parish Lane and then on the frontage road to continue on SH 170.
