        Begins after Stage 1 is completed, approximately September 4 (weather permitted) – Traffic moves to the newly completed southbound lanes – one lane in each direction.

        To accommodate the construction work, there will be NO PARKING allowed on N. Teutonia from W. Capitol to W. Ruby. Parking will be available on adjacent side streets.
