Transportation (DOT) - May 19, 2017
The portion of Northwest Boulevard between University Parkway and Chatham Road has been closed to through traffic because the street is being undermined by erosion around a pipe that passes under the street at 711 W. Northwest Boulevard. Residents to the east of the closure will be able to get to their houses from University Parkway. Vehicles will have access to the Hanes Geo Components plant from Chatham Road.
Connie James, the deputy director of transportation, said the closure will remain in place until further notice while city crews investigate the cause.
