Emergency Street Closure - North Davidson Street

To accommodate construction for the LYNX Blue Line Extension, North Davidson Street, between 36th Street and Craighead Road, will close May 13 at 9 p.m. and will reopen June 13 at 6 a.m. During this emergency closure, motorists can use the detour route of Craighead Road, North Tryon Street, Matheson Avenue and Jordan Place. This closure is necessary due to unsuitable and unstable soil conditions discovered during the course of construction.

Local access to residences 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.
