Markland Drive, between 3100 to 3198 block, will close Monday, August 11 at 9 a.m. and will remain closed for approximately one month. This closure is necessary to install culvert and sewer system, and adjust manholes. This closure is associated with the Ponderosa Neighborhood Improvement Project (512-08-048). A signed detour will be posted using Wedgefield Drive, Kenhill Drive and Fordwood Drive.
Pedestrian and bicycle traffic will be maintained at all times.

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.
