COLLEGE STATION -- Heads up drivers. If you live in south College Station there will be some lane closures that could affect you.
Starting Friday left turns will no longer be allowed at the Barron Road-Newport Lane intersections while crews work on phase two of the Barron Road widening project, which is expected to be completed in April.
"If we left it opened and maintained access through those intersections then the contractor would have to do those intersections in halves, which would take twice as long, so we're trying to get them done as soon as possible to minimize the impact to the residents," said assistant city engineer Daniel Beamon.
The left lane closures are only expected to last two weeks.
