Intersection Closure: Grimes Street and Norris Avenue
​Communicated:  June 12, 2013
Closure dates:  June 10, 2013 through June 23, 2013
Due to weather, the intersection of Norris Avenue and Grimes Street will remain closed until Sunday, June 23 at 5 p.m. The contractor will be performing sewer work for the Tryon Hills Neighborhood Improvement Project.  Motorists should detour using Dogwood Avenue, Bancroft Street and Ennis Avenue.  The road will be closed to all through traffic for the period above. 
Local access to residences will be maintained.
CATS bus routes 204 and 22 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.
