Update communicated: April 27, 2016
Closure dates: April 16, 2016 to May 13, 2016
To accommodate construction for the LYNX Blue Line Extension, the median at Arrowhead Drive closed on Saturday, April 16 at 6 a.m. For construction coordination, Arrowhead Drive will now reopen Friday, May 13 at 11:59 p.m. Motorists traveling northbound or southbound on North Tryon Street, as well as motorists turning right from Arrowhead Drive, will not be affected. Motorists seeking to turn left should follow the detour route of North Tryon Street, Tom Hunter Road and Orr Road (shown below in green).
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.
