Road Closure: Shadow Pond Lane


Charlotte Department of Transportation
Shadow Pond Lane
Communicated: May 22, 2014
Closure dates: April 23, 2014 to May 30, 2014
Due to weather the 5200 block of Shadow Pond Lane at Rea Road will now reopen Friday May 30 at 5 p.m.  This closure is necessary to tie in Shadow Pond Lane to the new Rea Road alignment for the Rea Road Improvement Project. Motorists should detour using Cotton Creek Drive, Truscott Road, Benbridge Lane, and Macandrew Drive.  The road will be closed to all through traffic for the period above.


Local access to residences 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.
