Closure dates: July 29, 2013 – October 14, 2013
Due to utility conflicts, this closure has been delayed. Shillington Place between Bar Harbor Lane and Glencastle Drive closed on Monday, July 29 at 9 a.m. and will now reopen on Monday, October 14 at 7 a.m. This closure is necessary for pipe and culvert installation for the Shillington Storm Drainage Improvement Project. Vehicles should use Bar Harbor Lane, Gleneagles Road, Park Road, Sharon Road and Glencastle Drive as a detour. Construction zones will be limited to local traffic only.
Access to driveways 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.
