Motorists will be on new pavement on a stretch of Radio Drive beginning Wednesday morning.

Crews replacing pavement on Radio Drive north and south of Valley Creek Road will move traffic from the southbound side of Radio Drive to the northbound side beginning at 6 a.m. Wednesday, Washington County announced.

For the past week and a half Radio Drive traffic has been diverted to one lane in each direction on the northbound side of the road as crews replaced the pavement on the southbound side of Radio Drive. Now they will work on the northbound side of the road.

The construction, expected for another couple of weeks, has slowed traffic at and near the intersection of Radio Drive and Valley Creek Road, which temporarily is controlled by stop signs instead of traffic lights.
