Lane Closure: West Fifth Street

​Communicated: August 6, 2013
Closure dates: August 13, 2013 to August 23, 2013

The right lane of West Fifth Street between North Church Street and North Tryon Street will close on August 13, 2013 at 9 a.m. and will reopen on August 23, 2013 at 4 p.m. This closure is necessary for a curb realignment project. The left lane will remain open at all times. Suggested alternate route is West Trade Street. Motorists should expect delays in this area.

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.
