Jefferson Street Pedestrian Improvement Project - Week of 5/22 to 5/26


The Jefferson Street Pedestrian Improvement Project will extend the shared use path and curb and gutter constructed on the southbound side of the Old Carolina Bridge from where it ends at Cheyenne Way south to the Town Hall property.  At this time, only utility relocations are taking place. When lane closures are expected, they can be anywhere within the project and shift locations daily within the project.  In addition, these are dates that the Contractor has permission to close lanes, it does not necessarily mean there will be lane closures on all days.  All lane closures are subject to change and weather permitting:
No work scheduled this week.
