Two-way traffic on Wood Street begins June 7

As of June 7, a new, two-way traffic pattern will be in place on Wood Street from Grant Street to Chauncey Avenue. The portion of Wood Street from Sheetz Street to Grant Street is currently closed to facilitate construction work; however, when that section of roadway reopens in mid-August it will be to two-way traffic.

Motorists and pedestrians are urged to use caution in the area as everyone adjusts to the new traffic patterns.

Wabash Landing Shopping Center parking restrictions, traffic reconfiguration

Beginning around May 30 and ending in early July, work will be underway in the Wabash Landing Shopping Center parking lot that will affect parking availability. To welcome shoppers, parking is free for the first two hours in the Wabash Landing Parking Garage starting June 5.

As part of this work, parking on the north side (next to the shops) will be temporarily unavailable while parking will be open on the south side (next to State Street).

Beginning in mid-June, traffic will be permanently reconfigured for vehicles to enter the shopping center by using the drive on the east side (in front of the Hilton Garden Inn hotel) off of Tapawingo Drive. After this traffic reconfiguration is in place, parking will be on the north side (next to the shops) only. Parking on the south side (next to State Street) will be permanently removed. 

Motorists and pedestrians should obey all posted signs and use caution in the area as everyone adjusts to the new traffic pattern.

North University Street between State Street and Stadium Avenue has lane restrictions in place to facilitate work in preparation for the street’s conversion from one-way to two-way traffic later this summer. The lane restrictions are expected to be in place through mid-July.

Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists should allow extra time if traveling through this area, obey all posted signs and proceed with caution.

Effective mid-May through mid-August, State Street between Airport/McCormick Road and Salisbury Street will be closed to vehicular traffic. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists should plan their routes accordingly, obey all posted signs and travel with caution.

Pedestrians and bicyclists navigating the area should use the north/south vehicular access routes (e.g. Airport/McCormick Road, Martin Jischke Drive, Marsteller Street, Grant Street and River Road). Signs and fencing are posted to help route pedestrians and bicyclists and will be adjusted as needed as the project progresses.

Periodic lane restrictions for State Street project continue through summer

In addition to the work outlined in the 2017 vehicular traffic plan, intermittent work could take place throughout the scope of the project through November. This work may affect pedestrians and bicyclists and could result in brief lane restrictions for vehicles. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists should obey all posted signs and proceed with caution in these areas.
