Temporary lane closures are expected over the next few months during a reconstruction project set to begin today along President Street in Baltimore, the city Department of Transportation announced.

According to officials, roadway construction will take place every weekday between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. -- weather permitting -- while additional weekend work may be performed from 8 p.m. on Fridays through 1 a.m. on Mondays. The project is expected to take about four months to complete, authorities said.

Several intersections along President Street will also undergo reconstruction. Milling and paving work will take place at the intersection of President and Pratt streets and the intersection of President and Fayette streets. New curbing, ramps, brick sidewalks and stamped concrete crosswalks will also be installed at these locations.

Transportation officials urged motorists traveling in these areas to use alternate routes while the work is completed.
