You have probably taken notice to some of the road construction projects in Terre Haute while heading to work or making your rounds.
The Terre Haute Street Department began work on 8th Avenue on Monday near Union Hospital.
With the expansion of Union Hospital there has been an increase in the flow of traffic in that area.
The project will widen the roadway and add a left turn lane on 8th Avenue along with a right turn lane on US 41.
Access to 8th Avenue will be limited to ambulance traffic only with all other traffic being detoured from Locust Street to Lafayette Avenue.
There are a few other projects around Terre Haute as well with one on Wilson Street between 3rd and 4th Street along with a project on 9th Street between Locust and the railroad tracks.
Be careful and take notice to all road construction during your travels around town.
