DOT officials said the lane closure is necessary so crews can install overhead signs.
Crews began work in the area in January 2005. The ensuing construction caused traffic delays along the corridor. The work was completed in November 2006, but the return of the construction barrels is drawing the ire of motorists.
"I'm tired of it. I just wish they would keep those lanes open and let traffic flow," said motorist Dori Barnard.
The DOT engineer in charge of the project said even though the work has been completed, it is still a construction zone and the DOT reserves the right to close lanes and do work if necessary.
Officials said the lane closure should last about two weeks, weather permitting.
