Beginning on Thursday, July 12th, work crews from Northern Pipeline will be boring a new gas main under the CSX railroad tracks on N. Mulberry Street. In order to have enough space to perform the work, the northbound lane of Mulberry Street will be closed to traffic between McComas Street and Manila Avenue; the southbound lane will remain open to traffic. Northbound traffic approaching the closure will be forced to detour at Fairgrounds Avenue. Motorists approaching the closure will encounter cones, barricades, detour signs, and other traffic control devices. It is anticipated that the lane closure will remain in place until approximately July 18th, but the schedule will depend upon conditions encountered during the work.
Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through this block of N. Mulberry Street while the closure is in effect.
Please contact the City’s Department of Parks & Engineering at (301) 739-8577 extension 125 if there are any questions regarding this advisory.
