Closure dates: August 19, 2013 to August 30, 2013
Due to utility conflicts, this closure has been extended. The intersection of Trade Street and Davidson Street closed on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. and will now reopen on Friday, August 30 at 4:30 p.m. This closure is necessary to accommodate utility relocation related to the CityLYNX Gold Line – Phase 1. 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 green on map below). Southbound motorists on Davidson Street can use East Trade Street, South Caldwell Street and East Third Street (shown in blue on below map).
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.
