The east closure will be at Crestwood Drive, although local traffic will be allowed through to access the residences west of Crestwood Drive. Nonlocal traffic will be detoured at Country Club Road.

The Crestwood neighborhood will remain accessible from East Chestnut Avenue for the duration of the project.
