Communicated:  March 20, 2013
Closure date:  March 25, 2013 through April 8, 2013
Westbound East Trade Street between North Caldwell Street and North College Street will be reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, March 25, 2013 until Monday, April 8, 2013.  During this time, left turns will be restricted at East Trade Street and North Brevard Street. This closure is necessary to accommodate water line construction related to the CityLYNX Gold Line - Phase 1. Motorists can expect congestion and additional delays in the project area.
Access to businesses will be maintained.
CATS bus routes will be affected.
Please note that 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.
