Effective today, the entire length of Revere Road, from N.C. Highway 54 to Sedwick Road, will be closed to all thru traffic in order to complete a four-month reconstruction and resurfacing project.
“There are seven individual sections of Revere Road that are slated for complete closure during the reconstruction process,” said Michael Hughes, assistant engineering manager for the City’s Public Works Department. “This is a very extensive project that requires work to be completed section-by-section in order to maintain access to the entire community for residents of the Parkwood,” Hughes added.
Electronic message boards and other signage is in place to advise local residents of established detour routes within the community.
Revere Road is closed to thru traffic and motorists should use alternative routes indicated on electronic message boards on N.C. Highway 54 and Sedwick Road. Additional detour signage has been posted on the alternate routes to direct thru traffic around the Revere Road closure.
Revere Road will remain closed to thru traffic until July 2011, in order for the City to completely reconstruct the seven sections of the road, repave the entire length of the road, and replace approximately 9,000 feet of curb and many driveway connections.
Residents are encouraged to access the section-by-section road closing and detours plans from the City’s website at www.DurhamNC.gov/departments/works/revere/index.cfm.
