Freedom Drive to I-277 Outer: Drivers can take West Summit Avenue to South Mint Street, then to Morehead Street back to the outer loop.
Drivers need to slow down and use extra caution while going through the work zone. They also need to pay extra attention to the road for their own safety, as well as any occupants of other vehicles and the construction crews in the area.
