West Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between South Church Street and South Mint Street will close Saturday, April 26, 2014 at noon and will re-open Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 6 p.m. This closure is necessary to remove a tower crane for the South Mint Street Apartment Building. The westbound detour will be left on South Church Street, right on West Stonewall Street, right on South Mint Street and left back on to West Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Pedestrian 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.
