Intersection Closure: Trade Street and Caldwell Street

Updated: December 20, 2013
Closure dates: December 16, 2013 to December 28, 2013

Due to scheduling conflicts of multiple construction activities and utility relocations, this closure has been extended. The intersection of Trade Street and Caldwell Street closed Monday, December 16, 2013 at 9 a.m. and will now reopen Saturday, December 28, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. This closure is necessary to accommodate utility relocation and construction related to the CityLYNX Gold Line – Phase 1. Motorists can expect congestion and additional delays in the project area.

Motorists on northbound Caldwell Street can use East Fourth Street, South College Street and East Fifth Street as a detour (shown in green on map below). Motorists on southbound Caldwell Street can use East Fifth Street, Davidson Street and East Fourth Street as a detour (shown in magenta on map below). Motorists on eastbound East Trade Street can use South Brevard Street, East Third Street, and South Kings Drive as a detour (shown in blue on map below).

Local access will be maintained.

CATS will be affected.

Weather and unforeseen circumstances occasionally prevent work from being completed as scheduled, and make it unsafe to reopen lanes or streets when planned.  When this occurs, City traffic engineers work directly with other City staff and contractors to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and reduce impacts to the traveling public.

Pedestrians walking near work zone areas should be alert, cautious and allow extra traveling time.  It is advised they cross at signalized intersections, use pedestrian walk signals where available and abide by detour signage.

Motorists traveling through work zone areas should be alert and extra cautious.  Drivers should get in the correct lane well in advance and constantly be on the lookout for vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes as they approach a work zone.  Drivers should double their following distance.
