CONSTRUCTION & TRAFFIC DELAYS
Ongoing construction projects or other longer-term events that might impact travel (e.g.
prescribed fires) will be moved here from “New and Happening Today” instead of to “Recent
News.” These items will remain as long as the event is ongoing and will therefore not be
cleaned out at the end of each week like “Recent News.”
