Closure dates: March 26, 2014 to May 2, 2014
Due to weather delays, this closure has been extended. The 6800 block of David Avenue between Ashford Street and Eagle Park Drive closed March 26 and will now reopen Friday, May 2 at 5 p.m. This closure is necessary to install a culvert for the Pawtuckett Neighborhood Improvement Project. Motorists should detour using Eagle Park Drive, Glenmoor Drive and Marietta Street. The road will be closed to all through traffic for the period above.
Local access to residences will be maintained.
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.
