Cumberland Avenue Rolling Lane Closure [May 5]
KUB crews will implement a rolling lane closure on Cumberland Avenue between S. Twenty First Street and Eighteenth Street from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5, as prep work is performed as part of the Cumberland Avenue Streetscapes Project. Crews will be working in the curbside, westbound lane. The inside westbound lane and both eastbound lanes in this area will not be impacted.
Some listed closures may extend beyond the scheduled times depending on the conditions encountered during excavation and construction. Appropriate traffic control measures, including flagmen, will be in place at this location to assist motorists traveling in the area. Due to the ongoing presence of workers and equipment, motorists are advised to use extreme caution and expect temporary delays in this area.
