Charlotte Department of Transportation
Road Closure Notice
Morningside Drive

Communicated: August 21, 2014
Closure dates: August 28, 2014 to September 26, 2014 
Morningside Drive between Commonwealth Avenue and Ivey Drive will close on Thursday August 28, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. and will remain closed through September 26, 2014.  This closure is necessary for construction of the Briar Creek Relief Sewer Phase 2.  Motorists may use Commonwealth Ave to The Plaza to Central Ave or Commonwealth Ave to Briar Creek to Central Ave as the detour routes.  See map below.

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.
