Runnymede Lane between Barclay Downs Drive and Michael Baker Place will close on Wednesday, June 15 at 9:00 p.m. and will re-open on Friday, July 1 at 6:00 a.m. This closure is necessary for replacement of the roadway damaged by last week's water main break and roadway washout. NCDOT maintains Runnymede Lane and has agreed to the closure in order to expedite repairs. Traffic can detour around the closure using Park Road, Fairview Road and Sharon Road. The detour route will be posted.
No through access will be allowed. Myers Park High School access will be from the Colony Road entrance only.
buses 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.
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.
