Cornelius Pass/Evergreen intersection signal shutdown planned for three nights

For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Sponsored by: Department of Land Use and Transportation, Capital Project Services Division

Nighttime traffic will be flagged through the intersection of Cornelius Pass Road and Evergreen Parkway from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday, July 5-7, for installation of underground utilities as part of the Cornelius Pass Road widening project.

The contractor will work as quickly as possible to minimize inconvenience. Travelers are advised to expect delays or use alternate routes. Pedestrian access will be available but will include detours to available sidewalks or paths.

The Cornelius Pass Road project will widen the roadway to three lanes in each direction between Cornell Road and U.S. 26. There will be a center median and dedicated turn lanes at several intersections, including U.S. 26. Other improvements include sidewalks on both sides of the road, a buffered bike lane on the west side, a separated two-way bike path on the east side and new street lighting. It is expected to be completed in late December.
