West Fourth Street Extension between Johnson and Wales Way and South Irwin Avenue will close on Friday, September 13 at 7 p.m. and will re-open on Monday, September 16 at 6 a.m.  This closure is necessary for a tower crane removal. Motorists should use Johnson and Wales Way, West Trade Street and South Sycamore Street as the detour.

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.
