MLK BOULEVARD, BETWEEN COLLEGE & YORK STREETS, TO BE CLOSED THIS WEEKEND BEGINNING TONIGHT
Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard will be closed to all traffic between College and York Streets beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday, July 15th and lasting until 6 a.m. on Monday, July 18th. Just as last weekend, this closure is occurring to accommodate the safe operation of a crane for construction at 100 College Street.
Motor vehicles that typically exit the 100 College Street garage onto MLK Blvd. will be able to do so. However, the portion of MLK Blvd. between College and York Streets will be closed to all other traffic. During this closure, motor vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic will be detoured around the closed portion of MLK Boulevard.
This closure is also planned to occur next weekend during the same hours (Friday, July 22 at 10 p.m. through Monday, July 25 at 6 a.m.) and with the same detour routes.
