NEWS RELEASE: Lane Shifts on Broadway Avenue
Where: Broadway Avenue from 6th Street SE to 1st Street NE
When: Saturday, October 14 through Monday, November 13, 2017
Traffic on Broadway Avenue northbound will be shifted to the most easterly lane from 6th Street SE to 1st Street NE in order to allow a construction crane to deliver ballroom trusses to the Hilton Project. Northbound traffic will be shifted through the median into the southbound traffic lane north of 1st Street SE. There will be one travel lane in each direction at all times at this intersection. Left and right hand turns will be allowed from the single northbound lane. Work happening with the fence project on South Broadway between 3rd Street South and 4th Street South will prevent left hand turns at 3rd Street .
East Center Street will be completely closed at Broadway causing all traffic from the ramp to go westbound.
Several RPT bus routes along Broadway Avenue will be detoured. Riders should expect delays. Detour routes and the location of temporary stops are posted on www.rptride.com under “Delays and Detours.” Riders should consider downloading the Doublemap mobile app for real-time bus tracking.
Pedestrians and drivers are advised to use caution while traveling around and through all construction zones.
