Construction crews are taking advantage of the dry weather forecasted for this weekend to install striping on southbound SR 167. This work is necessary to shift lanes on southbound SR 167, which will then allow crews to move into the next stage of construction of a new flyover ramp for the I-405/SR 167 Interchange Direct Connector Project.
