Another road construction project will begin Monday morning in a busy intersection near Downtown. 
Crews will install new manhole covers, water valve covers and survey monuments at Speedway and Stone. Lane restrictions will be in place through Wednesday afternoon. That part of the construction will take about a day, once the covers and monuments are installed, crews will allow the concrete around the utilities to cure for another 24 hours before reopening all lanes. 
The work is part of the Stone Avenue - Drachman Street to First Street Roadway Improvement Project that began last June. It is also part of the voter-approved Regional Transportation Authority plan
Drivers and pedestrians who plan on going through the area are advised to be cautious and watch for construction crews for the following two days.
