Street resurfacing operations have started for West Craighead Road and North Tryon Street and will last through early April. West Craighead Road between Drury Drive and Graham Street, and North Tryon Street between East Brookshire Boulevard and Dalton Avenue will be patched, milled and repaved. These resurfacing activities are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday. Motorists should expect congestion and delays.
It is suggested motorists find a route around the work zones to help avoid delays. Virtual Charlotte at http://vc.charmeck.org
can be used to help plan a route.
Local access 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.
