Work may be scheduled for this Saturday and/or Sunday at various locations on Fulton Road, pending city approval. Traffic delays are likely to occur in the impacted areas when traffic control measures are in place. Motorists should consider taking alternate routes when possible.

Upcoming traffic control – Piner Road/Fulton Road

Traffic control measures are tentatively scheduled to be in place at the Fulton Road/Piner Road intersection starting late next week or the week of October 24 (schedule subject to change). Once underway, this work is anticipated to last for up to 3-4 days. During this time the traffic control signal will be turned to flashing red. As a result, please plan for the possibility of traffic delays occurring at the intersection. We will provide an update on the schedule for this work as soon as more definite information is available.
