Driveway at Central and Unser Transit Center Temporarily Narrows Due to Work on New Library


Effective Dec. 20, 2013, the driveway connecting Central Ave NW with the Central and Unser Transit Center will be narrowed.


The driveway will still accommodate two-way traffic, but the northbound lane will be significantly narrower than usual.  From noon until 2 p.m. on Dec. 20, the driveway will be closed entirely to traffic.  Concrete barriers are being placed in one of the lanes of the driveway for the safety of construction workers.


The workers are building a deep basement next to the driveway that will be part of the new ABC Library at Central and Unser.


It is recommended that car traffic entering or leaving the Transit Center use the driveway off Unser Blvd NW instead.  However, cars using the Central entrance to the Transit Center are asked to use caution and maintain a speed of 10 mph.


The concrete barriers are expected to remain in place through late January, 2014.
