Westbound East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between South Brevard Street and South College Street will close Saturday, October 12 at 6 a.m. and will re-open the same day at 7 p.m.  Eastbound traffic will remain open. The Westbound detour is left on South Brevard Street, right on East Stonewall Street, right on South College Street and left back onto East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. This closure is necessary for crane work on a building’s roof.

Local access 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.
