North bound Gov. Scott Farm Road traffic can drive around the work zone by taking the following detour route: follow Kimrey Road south to Jim Minor Road, take Jim Minor Road west to Jimmy Kerr Road, take Jimmy Kerr Road north to Cherry Lane, take Cherry Lane east back to Gov. Scott Farm Road.

Motorists traveling around the work zone are reminded to stay alert, obey the posted speed limit and allow extra time to reach their destinations.  The City will have signs in place to help guide motorists along the detour route.
