Street Closings Announced

Saturday, August 16, 2014
Market Street will be narrowed to one lane in each direction on Sunday, to facilitate the staging and operation of a crane for replacement of a sky light panel at the Ocean Journey facility. The two lanes of traffic will be shifted to the east side of Market Street. Hours of operation for the project will be 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday only.

The 1100 block of Broad Street, between 11th Street and 12th Street, will be closed beginning Monday, for repair and replacement of windows in the overhead pedestrian walkway at the TVA building. The closure will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Monday and will remain closed through Tuesday, Sept.30. There will be two special events that are scheduled to use this route during the closure. The contractor is aware of the special events and will remove all of the construction equipment to facilitate the use of the roadway during those events.

The curb lane of the 1100 block of southbound Carter Street will be closed for a maintenance project on the Siskin Building on Tuesday. This is a single lane closure only and the hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
