Road Closure: Five Knolls Drive

Communicated: November 6, 2013
Closure dates: November 18, 2013 to December 9, 2013

The 5300 block of Five Knolls Drive between Summer Gate Drive and Rea Road will close Monday, November 18 at 7 a.m. and will reopen Monday, December 9 at 5 p.m.  This closure is necessary for the contractor to tie-in Five Knolls Drive to the new Rea Road as a part of the Rea Road Widening Project. Motorists should detour using Rea Road and Summer Gate Drive.  The road will be closed to all through traffic for the period above. 

Local access to residences 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.
