Motorists travelling northbound on North Brevard Street can use East Fifth Street, North Caldwell Street and East Sixth Street (shown in green on map below). Motorist needing to access Preferred Parking off of the 200 block of North Brevard Street should enter from Fifth Street or Caldwell Street.

Local access will not be maintained to businesses and parking facilities.

CATS 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.
