Update Communicated: December 29, 2014
Closure dates: August 11, 2014 – March 31, 2015

Unforeseen subsurface challenges have caused some delay on the Little Sugar Creek bridge preservation work. These challenges have been overcome and the 600 block of East 18th Street, between North Davidson Street and North Alexander Street, will now reopen on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. Motorists should detour using North Davidson Street, Parkwood Avenue and North McDowell Street. Pedestrians should detour using North Davidson Street, East 17th Street and North Alexander Street. 

Local access will be maintained.

CATS bus routes will not be affected.

East 18th St 

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.
