NE 465 construction

Crews will be using a machine called a zipper wall in much of this area of construction. The zipper wall allows contractors to work safely behind a concrete barrier wall. The machine moves the barrier wall to make traffic flow better and faster when it’s time to move areas of construction.

Members of the media are asked to use the media contact at the bottom of this release with any requests to see the zipper wall in action.
