​Communicated:  July 10, 2013
Closure dates:  July 10, 2013 to July 11, 2013
Graham Street at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will close on Wednesday, July 10 at 6:00 p.m. and will remain closed through Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 6:00 a.m. This closure is necessary to complete sanitary sewer work associated with the BB&T Knight Stadium construction. Motorists should detour using Fourth Street and Mint Street. 
Local access to residences will be maintained.
CATS bus routes 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.
