Engineers to close S3N intersections

Published 12:36 am Saturday, March 4, 2017

Beginning Monday, March 6, the intersection of West Watson Street and Baisden Street will be closed to through traffic entering and exiting South Three Notch Street.

Daniel Wells of CDG Engineer said the southbound traffic lane (from Dunson Street to Seegers Street) will remain open to motorists travelling in the southbound direction.

In January, engineers closed the street to northbound traffic from Seegers Street to the railroad tracks.

The detour plan routes northbound traffic (inbound from the bypass to the Square) from Snowden to Church Street.

Wells previously said the traffic changes which began in January are expected to be in place for six months.

Work on the massive project began the first week of November, when the first phase of construction widened the street from Simmons Street to Railroad Avenue. This phase also included installation of a new sanitary sewerage line in the center of the street.

Another phase included widening on the southbound side of the street, but did not interrupt traffic.

The completed project is expected to take approximately a year.
