Closure dates: June 20, 2013 to June 21, 2013
Freedom Drive at Forsythia Circle closed June 20, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. and re-opened Friday morning. City crews worked through the night to repair and repave the street. Water outage was minimal and most customers had no interruption in service.
This closure is to repair an 8” water-main for the Freedom Drive Road Widening Project. A detour will be posted using Edgewood Road, Tuckaseegee Road and Toddville Road.
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.
