The 7200 block of Park Road has been closed in both directions due a water main break. It is currently unknown how long the closure will be in place but it is certain to be in place at least through September 10, 2011. Updates will be provided as more information is available.
Northbound traffic can detour around traffic via Sharon Road West, South Boulevard and Tyvola Road. Southbound traffic can detour around the closure via Fairview Road and Sharon Road. See 'Map of affected portions of Park Road'.
Local access to homes and businesses will be maintained.
Route 19 trips traveling to and from the Sharon Road West light rail station will use Sharon Road between Fairview and Park Road/Quail Corners. These trips could operate a few minutes late while on detour. The detour is necessary because of the damage caused by a water line break on Park Road between Fairview and Sharon Road.
Route 19 trips to/from Southpark are not impacted by this detour. Route 19 continues to operate as scheduled between Fairview and Uptown Charlotte. Riders can always check for updates by calling 704-336-7433 or visiting www.ridetransit.org
Please note that 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.
