Traffic alert: E. Rocky River closure
As you may have read earlier this week on DavidsonNews.net, the state Department of Transportation plans to begin work Monday, Aug. 10, on construction of a roundabout at Concord and East Rocky River Roads.
For drivers, the project will bring a 2 1/2 month closure of East Rocky River between Concord and Shearers roads. The town has suggested a detour – Grey Road to Shearers Road.
Town officials say there may be an increase in traffic from emergency and other vehicles on streets off Davidson-Concord Road.
Police Chief Jeanne Miller said police plan daily patrols on Davidson-Concord Road and in nearby neighborhoods during the work. “We are going to be dedicating patrols out there every day to make sure people respect the speed limit, whatever it is,” she said. “We are cognizant of the fact that it could change some traffic patterns.”
