Road Closures

 Construction is expected to begin on Phase 2 of the CityLYNX Gold Line streetcar project in Fall 2016. Until then, utility work will occur along the alignment. Current road closures include:

West Trade Street

Single-lane closures from Cedar Street to Graham Street May 23 - Sept. 26, 2016

The eastbound left lane of West Trade Street between Cedar Street and Graham Street will close on Monday, May 23, 2016 at 9 a.m. and will re-open on Monday, September 26, 2016 at 4 p.m. The westbound left lane will have daily closures from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the same time frame. This closure is necessary for utility relocation work. One eastbound and westbound lane will remain open to traffic.

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.
