Additional work will occur at the intersection of Mount Zion Road and Industrial Drive, according to the release. 

Work is expected to start Wednesday, Dec. 6.

It will not restrict traffic from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., the release states.

Outside of those times, there might be short-term lane closures, the release states.

In the beginning of the project, work will include underground boring for new signal conduits, the release states. As work continues into winter, additional signals will appear with some intersections getting flashing yellow arrows for left turns, the township said.

The township urges caution when driving through the work zones.
