PAVEMENT BUCKLES DUE TO EXTREME HIGH TEMPERATURES
(August 3, 2011) Traffic has been switched on Legacy Drive one half mile north of Lebanon Road so that northbound traffic transitions over and shares the west half of the road with southbound traffic. In addition, Chippewa Trail is closed at the intersection with Legacy Drive. These traffic detours are necessary to allow City crews to repair the pavement that buckled Tuesday evening due to the extreme hot and dry conditions. The traffic detours will be in place for at least two or three days depending on the extent of the damage and the time required to repair it.
While Chippewa Trail is closed, residents of the Cheyenne Crossing neighborhood will need to use Academy Drive to enter and leave their neighborhood. Traffic on Legacy Drive will experience some delay between Lebanon Road and Stonebrook Parkway as two lanes of traffic will need to merge into one lane in both directions. Northbound motorists should pay special attention to the temporary transitions from one side of the median to the other and travel through them slowly.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the construction zone.
