Charlotte Department of Transportation
Road Closure Notice
Mecklenburg Avenue
Communicated: May 16, 2014
Closure dates: May 19, 2014 to June 16, 2014
Mecklenburg Avenue between the intersections of Norcross Place and Daniel Street will close Monday May 19th at 9 a.m. and will remain closed for approximately one month. This closure is necessary to install curb and gutter, sidewalks, accessible ramps, pavement marking, asphalt paving and the building of three traffic calming islands. This closure is associated with the Mecklenburg Avenue Traffic Calming Project. A signed detour will be posted using Beacon Street, Marguerite Avenue and Lynhaven Street.
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.
