Construction begins this week on a project to re-align Smithfield Road with Bridge Street at Davis Boulevard, creating a four-leg intersection. Smithfield will also be widened to four lanes from Davis to just north of Mid-Cities and turn lanes will be added to the intersection at Mid-Cities to increase efficiency and reduce delays during peak times. New sidewalks and street lighting will be added. The project is expected to be complete in early 2019. Please slow down and watch for workers when traveling in this area.
