Yancey Avenue will experience short-term lane closures beginning Monday, Aug. 10 at 9 a.m.
Traffic will be detoured along Olive Road to Tippin Avenue, around the north intersection of Tippin Avenue and Parazine Street. Yancey Avenue can be accessed at the intersection of Parazine Street and Yancy Avenue.
Intermittent lane closures on Yancey Avenue are necessary to install a new 18-inch storm drain for upgrades in the Olive Road Multi-Lane Reconstruction and Drainage Project Phase 2.
The roadway closure is expected to remain in effect for two weeks, and every effort will be made to expedite construction efforts in order to reopen the road on or before Friday, Aug. 21 at 5 p.m.
If other lane or roadway closures are necessary beyond the anticipated time period, another notice will be issued.
