Beginning Sunday, December 15, construction activity on the CentrePointe block is expected to have a significant impact on traffic flow in downtown Lexington.

On Sunday, the block of Upper Street between Main and Vine streets will be closed from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. while crews set up traffic controls and other construction measures.  Traffic will be detoured to Mill Street.

The construction will shut down all sidewalks around the CentrePointe block and close the left turn lane of Limestone Street onto Main Street 24-hours a day.

Motorists who want to turn left from Limestone onto Main Street will have to use the center turn and through lane of Limestone.

Pedestrians in the area will have to use the opposite sides of the streets while the sidewalks are blocked.

The project will also eliminate on-street metered parking near the construction.

Concrete barriers and fencing will be placed around the site.

The city grading permit allows some blasting, but the developers have to obtain specific permission from the state before blasting can occur on the site.
