During construction, County Highway Q will be closed to through traffic. Local traffic is allowed. Access to the dog park, soccer field and compost facility will be maintained at all times. There may be short periods where certain construction steps that will require motorists to access the compost facility from the south (to Q via Balzer Road, Oncken Road, or County M).
