Work on the new Deception Bay overpass on the Bruce Highway is gathering pace with motorists and residents warned of more heavy machinery, noise, dust and temporary lighting.
The January update on the $163 million project says the construction teams will be continuing with earthworks, drainage works and piling for the first of two new bridges across the highway.
Areas impacted are on the Bruce Highway, Old Gympie Rd, New Settlement Rd, Deception Bay Rd and the Eastern Service Rd.
As a result, there may be localised traffic changes, speed limits, detours and traffic controllers in place. With heavy machinery in operation, dust and noise may increase.
There will be an increase in construction traffic near the work zones and temporary lighting towers will be in place during nightwork.
Night work will be done from mid-to-late January to remove the centre median along Deception Bay Rd.
