VETERANS DRIVE CLOSING SET FOR MONDAY NIGHT

Oct. 25, 2002 – A portion of Veterans Drive will be closed to traffic Monday night beginning at 8 p.m. With the exception of large trailer trucks, traffic will be restricted between the Legislature Building and the Alexander A. Farrelly Justice Complex.
Flaggers will be stationed at each intersection to direct traffic.
Acting Commissioner of Public Works Robert L. Moorehead said the action is necessary to facilitate the use of a track excavator, which requires two lanes to complete its work.
Work will continue next week during the day to expedite the remainder of the Veterans Drive sewer line replacement project, he said.
"During the daytime work, traffic will revert to the current routes in which eastbound traffic is detoured through the Fort Christian parking lot and westbound traffic is permitted along the southern lane on Veterans Drive," Moorehead said.
"It is anticipated that this work will be completed by the end of November," he said.
Moorehead urged motorists to continue to use alternate routes when possible, to reduce speed in the area, and to follow posted traffic signs and flaggers.
