A major construction project is underway on busy Meredyth Drive in Northwest Albany, and officials are asking you to drive with caution there.
Construction of the $30 million Meredyth Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Center has started.
Workers are installing huge drainage pipes in the canal between Phoebe Putney's Meredyth Place and the former Ordinary Coyote restaurant.
The work is blocking two lanes of traffic and forcing lane shifts.
"New infrastructure into the campus. Right now we are installing storm water across to these existing draining ditches, and coming up the storm water infrastructure so that we can eventually pave," David Smith of the KLMK Group.
Construction of the 85,000 square foot building will be done in two phases and should take about 16 months. The portion causing the lane shifts should be done by July 11th.
