Update: Davidson Street and Trade Street

Updated: March 21, 2014
Closure dates: March 3, 2014 to March 31, 2014

Due to weather, this closure has been extended. The intersection of Trade Street and Davidson Street closed Monday, March 3, 2014 at 9 a.m. and will now reopen Monday, March 31, 2014 at 6 a.m. This closure is necessary to accommodate multiple construction activities and utility relocations related to the CityLYNX Gold Line – Phase 1 project. Motorists can expect congestion and additional delays in the project area. 

Motorists on northbound Davidson Street can use East Fourth Street, South Caldwell Street and East Fifth Street as a detour (shown in blue on map below). Motorists on Southbound Davidson Street can use East Sixth Street, North Brevard Street,  East Fifth Street, North Caldwell Street and East Third Street as a detour (shown in green on map below).

Local access will be maintained.

CATS 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.

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.
