The 100 block of South Davidson Street between East Trade Street and East Fourth Street will close on Monday June 24, 2013 at 6:00 a.m. and will reopen on Saturday June 29, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. This closure is necessary to accommodate storm water construction related to the CityLYNX Gold Line – Phase 1.
 
Motorists on northbound Davidson Street can use East Fourth Street, South Caldwell Street, and East Trade Street as a detour (shown in blue on map below). Southbound motorists on Davidson Street can use East Trade Street, South Caldwell Street and East Third Street (shown in green on map below). Motorists can expect congestion and additional delays in the project area.
 
Local access will be maintained.
 
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.
