Olive Road will experience short-term lane closures beginning Monday, Aug. 19.
A portion of Olive Road between Hendrix Avenue and Boyd Avenue will be closed to through traffic.

Westbound traffic will be detoured along Olive Road to Hendrix Avenue, south to Beagles Street, onto Boyd Avenue, back to Olive Road.
