Lane Closure: West Third Street

​Communicated: August 21, 2013
Closure dates: August 21, 2013 to August 26, 2013

The 200 and 300 blocks of West Third Street between South Mint Street and South Church Street have been reduced to one lane and will re-open on Monday, August 26, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. This closure is necessary for delivery and installation of landscaping associated with the Romare Bearden Park.  Heavy congestion can be expected on eastbound Fourth Street, southbound Mint Street and eastbound Third Street during this time.  Motorists are encouraged to use Fifth Street (shown in green below) and Stonewall Street (shown in blue below) as alternate routes.

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.
