There’s a detour just to the east for drivers to go beside this entire work zone. A pilot car and stop lights will direct traffic through the detour. In this area, travelers may notice trucks hauling material to and from the construction site, according to MDT. A detour remains to the west of Great Bear Avenue and Black Eagle Road as this roadway has been excavated.
