South Mint Street between West Stonewall Street and West Morehead Street will close Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 6 p.m. and will reopen Monday, May 19 at 6 a.m. This closure is necessary for crane work on the Bank of America Stadium. The northbound detour will use West Morehead Street, South Tryon Street and West Stonewall Street. The southbound detour will use West Stonewall Street, South Church Street and West Morehead Street.

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.
