A section of County Road 4/Brown Lane, just north of the Foley Beach Express toll bridge booth, will be closed for approximately 6 hours for paving on Tuesday, Dec. 19 or Wednesday, Dec. 20, depending on weather conditions.

Work will take place during daytime hours. Detoured traffic will have to travel roughly 2 miles north and make a left onto Roscoe Road.
