Construction continues on the East Washington Street Extension project, otherwise known as McIntosh Parkway.
Grading is nearing completion for the segment from Greison Trail to near Ashley Park. Included in this section is the completion of several concrete box culverts, and the installation of storm sewers, and a sanitary sewer main and water main.
The next scheduled construction is the roundabout intersection at Greison Trail.
This will necessitate the closure of Greison Trail from Berry Avenue to Park Lane at Chastain Park, for approximately three months. The schedule for closure will begin next week and continue through late September.
Closure of the road is designed to expedite construction and maximize safety of the construction workers, according to city officials.
Detour signs will be posted. The detour will direct southbound through traffic to Berry Avenue to Roberts Road to East Broad Street, back to Greison Trail.
Northbound through traffic will be directed to East Broad Street to Roberts Road to Berry Avenue, back to Greison Trail.
Access will be maintained to all of the businesses and residential neighborhoods from Greison Trail.
