Road Closures: Marlene Street and Cheshire Avenue
Communicated: March 27, 2013

Closure dates: March 28, 2013 to April 29, 2013

At the intersection of Freedom Drive, both Marlene Street and Cheshire Avenue will close beginning on March 28, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. for one month. These closures are necessary to construct curb and gutter, grading and asphalt associated with the Freedom Drive Widening Project. A detour will be posted using Browns Avenue, Tuckaseegee Road, Susan Street and Edgewood Road.
Local access 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.
