Construction is beginning on the $18.5 million upgrade to the Cedar–University RTA rapid station. Beginning Oct. 4, traffic patterns near the station will significantly change.
Cedar Avenue (westbound) will have three lanes maintained, but they will be much narrower;
Vehicles will no longer be able to use the Cedar Avenue “jughandle” to continue onto Cedar Avenue westbound; instead, a detour will take drivers westbound on Carnegie Avenue to Stokes Boulevard (southbound) back to Cedar Avenue (view a map of the detour);
Cedar Avenue (eastbound) will be reduced to two lanes from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Ambleside Drive/Murray Hill Road.
Beginning Oct. 8, additional lane closures will occur after 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Traffic will be maintained using flaggers.
