MERIDIAN -- The intersection of Meridian Road and Pine Avenue are closed this weekend for construction work in order to widen Meridian Road to five lanes.

The intersection will be closed while crews cross the intersection with sewer and storm drainpipe, and will open back up part way on Monday.

The $8 million construction project begins next Tuesday at the intersections of Meridian Road and Cherry and at Main Street and Fairview Avenue, bringing major impacts to traffic through September.
