Union Blvd traffic will be most impacted and detours will be in place over the weekend. This work is weather dependent; therefore, the dates of the closures are subject to change. Work is required to lower the intersection two to three feet to reduce the grade and increase visibility.

  • Motorists are encouraged to avoid the Woodmen-Union intersection Friday evening through early Monday morning
  • During this time motorists will not be able to cross Woodmen Road using Union Blvd
  • There will be no left turns at any time and limited right turns
  • Uniformed traffic control officers will be on site to direct traffic movements
  • Detours: Briargate and Dublin boulevards to the north and south, and Academy Boulevard and Lexington Drive/Rangewood Drive to the west and east.

After completion of this weekend work, the traffic on Woodmen Rd will return to its current alignment, while Union Blvd traffic will be shifted from the east side of the road to the west. Traffic is expected to remain in this alignment until later in the summer.

Specific traffic impacts and illustrations are included in the attached fact sheet.
