Closure - 100 Block West Doty Street

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 - 3:40pm

Starting Wednesday, April 6 at 4:00 AM, J.H. Findorff will close West Doty Street to all vehicular traffic from South Hamilton Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, in order to erect two tower cranes at the Anchor Properties Development project. 
 
Because the assembly crane used to erect the tower cranes will span the full width of Doty Street, all travel lanes must be closed.  Additionally, due to the size, location and complexity of the crane erection process, the work cannot be completed from South Hamilton Street or West Main Street.   
 
Outer loop traffic will be detoured to South Carroll Street and to West Main Street on the Capitol Square.  Please see the attached map. 
 
Motorists are encouraged to use public transportation and alternate routes during this closure as severe travel delays are expected during the morning and afternoon peak travel times. 
 
Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained at all times on the sidewalk on the south side of West Doty Street.  Access to area businesses, parking areas and residences will be maintained at all times. 
 
The closure is scheduled to continue through the afternoon on Sunday, April 10th, but this is weather-dependent.  Tower crane erection work cannot take place with wind gusts greater than 15 mph.    

If you have any questions, please direct them to the contact persons shown.
