Buck Lake Road is eastbound traffic only with phase III of the construction project underway, which is from Davis Drive to Pedric Road.
Drivers are urged to extra cautious with Leon County Schools starting Monday.
Phase III of the Buck Lake Road Construction project began earlier this year.
Public Works administrators have coordinated with the Leon County School district and the principal at Buck Lake Elementary School to ensure traffic moves smoothly for drivers in that area when school starts.
Tony Park, Leon Count y Public Works Director, says, "I just suggest that they be patient, watch out for the workers. If at all possible, look at possibly carpooling with your neighbor such that only one vehicle brings the students to school."
Infrastructure improvements on Buck Lake Road include the installation of turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes, and the enhancement of stormwater management systems.
The Buck Lake Road project is under contract to be complete October 2012, but is expected to be finished before then.
