COLUMBIA — Two Columbia construction projects could cause traffic delays.

Construction is scheduled to close Lakewood Drive between St. Charles Road and Trikalla Drive, starting Wednesday and lasting through June 25, according to a release from the Columbia Public Works Department.

The other construction project is a bridge for the Columbia Terminal Railroad that is scheduled to be erected over Highway 63 in north Columbia. The construction is planned to begin June 14 and last four to five weeks, according to a separate release from the department. The contractor, Emery Sapp & Sons, said the entire project should be completed by Oct. 15.

Entrance and exit ramps to State Route B could be closed at points, the release said. Alternate routes will be offered, and lane restrictions are scheduled for Sundays through Thursdays between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
