West Doty Street Closure Wednesday-Sundayposted
Starting Wednesday, March 22nd at 5:00 a.m., 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 dismantle two tower cranes at the Anchor Properties Development project.
Because the assembly crane used to dismantle 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 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 (see map here).
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, March 26th, but this is weather-dependent. Tower crane dismantle work cannot take place with wind gusts greater than 15 mph.
