Attached below is a traffic advisory that was issued by KUB Community Relations Friday afternoon in association with upcoming utility work. Contact KUB at 524-2911 if you have questions about this or any other KUB construction activities.Re: Traffic Advisory – Lane Closure for Utility Work [All closures and work are weather permitting]
South Seventeenth Street Lane Closure [August 3] – KUB will close the northbound, curbside lane on a short section of South Seventeenth Street between Cumberland Avenue and White Avenue on Sunday, August 3, from 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. as work is completed on the water distribution system in this area. One northbound lane and both southbound lanes will remain open.
Fort Sanders Area Lane Closures [August 4-8] – KUB and its contractor will implement intermittent lane closures daily from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. on the following streets in the Fort Sanders area next week:
· Forest Avenue – Full closure for construction between Thirteenth Street and World’s Fair Park Drive with access to local traffic maintained.
· Clinch Avenue – Intermittent lane closures on August 4-5 for paving work between Fourteenth Street and Eleventh Street.
· Bridge Avenue – Intermittent lane closures on August 6-7 for paving work between Fourteenth Street and Eleventh Street.
All work is weather permitting. Temporary lane closures may be implemented to accommodate short-term construction needs. The Fort Sanders neighborhood work will be isolated to individual streets/areas, and construction will not take place over the entire neighborhood at the same time. Street parking may be temporarily restricted in the immediate construction area to facilitate safe access for equipment and workers. Construction methods will include sections of open-cut trench replacement, as well as trenchless rehabilitation, which includes lining of the existing pipes and pipe-bursting methods. The condition and depth of the existing pipe, as well as accessibility, will determine the construction method used. Selected manholes will also be replaced or rehabilitated as part of this project. As work areas shift, follow up advisories will be issued.
