Lane Closure: Central Avenue

​Communicated: May 20, 2013

Closure dates: May 20, 2013 to May 24, 2013
                                                     
The right lane of inbound Central Avenue at 10th Street/Louise Avenue closed on Monday, May 20, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. and will reopen on Friday, May 24, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. This closure is necessary to test for street improvements.  All current movements will continue to be allowed at the intersection during the closure period.

Local access to all businesses will be maintained.
 
CATS routes 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.
