Day Two of the Washington Street widening project shows that eastbound traffic at Cedar Lake Road and Washington Street is totally closed. Although the area was supposed to be entirely closed to traffic, they are allowing limited westbound traffic through from the east all the way to Cedar Lake Road. However, don’t expect that to continue once they get more equipment into the construction area and start tearing up more of the old roadbed.
Quite a bit of traffic was still moving through the “local traffic only” area but I noticed most vehicles travelled all the way through from Hainesville Road to Cedar Lake Road and obviously were not just trying to get to their Round Lake Park homes. I turned off when I saw the big flashing sign that said road closed ahead, not knowing that they were still letting some traffic through.
