Southbound River Street traffic will take the reverse route.
The full closure will be in place until Monday, May 15, weather permitting.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to flaggers and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.
