Road Closure: John Russell Road

Communicated: October 9, 2013
Closure dates: October 14, 2013 – October 31, 2013

John Russell Road between McLean Road and Rocky River Road will close Monday, October 14 at 9 a.m. and will reopen Thursday, October 31 at 4 p.m. This closure is necessary for roadway improvements associated with the Seven Oaks subdivision. Motorists should use Rocky River Road and Back Creek Church Road as a detour.  Construction zones will be limited to local traffic only.

Access to driveways 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.
