[ARCHIVED] City shifts northbound approach to MLK Jr. Memorial Bridge

This northbound diagonal approach to the MLK Jr. Memorial Bridge will be closed Monday

The northbound diagonal approach to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge in front of Lou’s Antiques has been permanently closed to traffic to allow construction of the River District Gateway Plaza.

Northbound traffic is now directed to make a left turn from Craghead Street onto Patton Street in order to cross the Martin Luther King Bridge. The center median on Craghead Street between Main and Patton Street has been shifted to allow two lanes for traffic to turn left toward the bridge.

Message boards are being used to alert motorists about the new traffic pattern.

Drivers from the south are encouraged to use Patton Street to cross the Dan River and avoid delays on Craghead Street.
