Beginning the morning of Thursday, Aug. 21, drivers will notice a shift in the configuration of Mercer Street as it crosses Dexter Avenue North. Mercer Street will shifted south to allow for demolition of the bridge over Broad Street and utility work through the intersection for approximately one year. Turning movements and the number of eastbound and westbound lanes will remain unchanged.
For increased safety, westbound Mercer Street will be restricted to one lane between Eighth and Fifth avenues North between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21, and Friday, Aug. 22, to provide space for the demolition of the bridge over Broad Street. At least one westbound lane will remain open.
