FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale is alerting motorists that beginning on Monday, August 24, West Sunset Drive will be closed between Emerald Lane and Parrish Lane for the demolition and complete replacement of the bridge over Little Crab Orchard Creek.

Local traffic will be able to access the Life Community Center from Parrish Lane, and residents living along Sunset Drive between Little Crab Orchard Creek and Emerald Lane will be able to access their properties from the Emerald Lane side of the closure.

Construction is expected to be complete in early November, barring any unforeseen delays. Motorists should avoid the construction area as it will be impassable throughout the duration of construction.

Pedestrians and bicyclists should also avoid the area as it will be hazardous and impassible during construction.

The Sunset Drive Trailhead and access to the David Kenney Trail will be closed during construction; you can continue to enjoy the David Kenney Trail from the Chautauqua Road or Freeman Street Trailheads.

For more information, contact the City’s Engineering Division at (618) 457-3270.
