Traffic Control on Real Road Starts Wednesday

Crews are setting bridge falsework

The contractor for the Centennial Corridor Mainline will begin setting bridge falsework across Real Road this week. Falsework supports the steel and concrete while the bridge is under construction. This work will require one-way traffic control on Real Road between Stockdale Highway and Elcia Drive, beginning Wednesday, January 15 and continuing through Friday, January 17.

Flagging personnel will need to stop traffic between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. each work day. Delays of up to 10 minutes are anticipated. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow additional time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this section of Real Road during this time period.

Work may be rescheduled without notice due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Please slow down and watch for construction workers and equipment while driving in the vicinity of this work. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
