At Freedom Drive, the entrances for Allenbrook Drive, Ranch Road, Gambia Street and Thriftwood Drive will all close on April 20, 2013 beginning at 9:00 a.m. until further notice.

Please refer to the maps at the end of this message.

  • Allenbrook Drive: Use Tanglebriar Drive, Grovewood Drive and Lanewood Place.

  • Gambia Street: Use Faraday Street and Weststone Drive.
  • Thriftwood Drive: Use Marble Street, Montcalm Street and Bradford Drive.

CATS will not 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.
