Tallahassee, Florida - March 8, 2012 -
This weekend, the City of Tallahassee will close the intersection of Gaines Street and Railroad Avenue as part of the Gaines Street project. The closure will be in effect from 7 a.m. Saturday, March 10, through 6 p.m. Sunday, March 11. Crews will be milling the intersection to prepare it for resurfacing.
Westbound traffic on Gaines Street, as well as southbound and northbound traffic on Railroad Avenue at the intersection of Gaines Street, will not be permitted. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorists around the closure using adjacent streets.
Due to the existing one-way traffic pattern, eastbound traffic on Gaines Street will continue to be detoured at Woodward Avenue north to St. Augustine Street.
The City is currently working on the first segment of phase two of the reconstruction of Gaines Street. This segment runs approximately 750 feet from S. Macomb Street west through the intersection of Gaines Street and Railroad Avenue. Work is currently underway in the south lanes and, pending no unforeseen circumstances, is expected to switch to the north lanes in approximately three weeks.
