“Suffolk Public Works and the Suffolk Police Department would like to remind citizens that work zone safety and the safety of motorists are always top priorities,” said officials in a press release. “Most work zone traffic incidents are caused by excessive speed, driver inattention, and driver impairment. “

Drivers can expect police enforcement within the area to include red-light running, truck safety, sobriety checkpoints, and increased fines up to $500 per speeding violation. 

The new light is part of the Route 58/Holland Road Corridor Improvements Project that is set to provide an additional lane of travel in each direction from the Route 58/13/32 Bypass to approximately 0.7 miles west of Manning Bridge Road.

Officials say the project is set to be completed in December 2024.
