New Traffic Pattern at Wesleyan Drive Beginning Saturday

Thursday, October 03, 2013

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, eastbound traffic on Wesleyan Drive will be directed onto the reconstructed, permanent, eastbound lanes of Wesleyan Drive from Northampton Boulevard to Baker Road. 

A new signal will be in operation at the Wesleyan Drive and College Drive intersection.  New signs will be in place, and police officers will be directing traffic at the intersections of Northampton, Norfolk Academy, College and Baker. 

Signs will be posted in advance warning motorists.   All work is WEATHER PERMITTING. 

This is the beginning of the third and final phase of construction along this section of Wesleyan Drive.  Lane closures along both sides of Wesleyan will be implemented throughout Phase III construction as work is completed at the various intersections.    

E.V. Williams, Inc. is the prime contractor for the project.  

For questions or additional information about the project, please contact Chris Martin, the project manager with E.V. Williams, at (757) 420-1140.
