NEW "ONE-WAY PAIR" TRAFFIC PATTERN: MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS ADVISED TO USE EXTRA CAUTION
A new, permanent traffic pattern is now in place along North Tryon Street between West 29th Street and Sylvania Avenue. This section of North Tryon Street is now one way northbound. Motorists traveling south on North Tryon Street are being diverted to a newly constructed, one-way street named North Church Street. Signs are in place to guide motorists through the area.
In order to accommodate median and storm drain construction in the project area, one lane on both North Tryon Street and North Church Street between West 29th Street and Sylvania Avenue will be closed until January 10, 2020. Motorists can avoid potential congestion by using North Graham Street as an alternate route. Local access to residences and businesses will be maintained.
Three CATS bus stops will move from North Tryon Street to North Church Street. Signs are in place to direct transit users to the new stops.
Motorists should use caution by allowing extra time when traveling through the project area, getting in the correct lane well in advance, doubling their following distance and paying close attention to pedestrians and vehicles merging into adjacent travel lanes and from driveways and side streets.
Pedestrians should cross only at signalized intersections, using pedestrian walk signals where available and abide by any detour signage.
