Road Closure: Village Lake Drive

Communicated: April 24, 2014
Closure date: May 1, 2014 through May 5, 2014

Village Lake Drive between Monroe Road and Woodscape Drive will close Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 9 a.m. and will reopen Monday, May 5 at 4 p.m. This closure is necessary for utility work. The detour will be Monroe Road, Sardis Road North and East Independence Boulevard.

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.
