Lane Closure on W Broad Street for Duct Bank Installation
On Wednesday, March 1, Duke Energy began installing a duct bank along W Broad Street, between W Washington Street and W McBee Avenue. The majority of work will take place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. Some Saturday work will also be required, and periodic concrete pours will be done during the daytime between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times, and flaggers will be on-site to guide traffic through the work zone. Weather permitting, the entire project is expected to take three months to complete. The purpose of the project is to improve reliability and increase capacity in the downtown area.
