Cook Concrete plans to begin replacing failing concrete panels on Forum Boulevard on the south side of the Hinkson Creek Bridge on Monday, July 22 at 9 p.m. The project, which is scheduled to be done during the evening hours to reduce the impact on traffic, will require that Forum Boulevard be reduced to one lane during the work. Flaggers will assist motorists through the work zone but delays are expected, so motorists are encouraged to find alternative routes.

Message boards will be placed on Forum Boulevard to make motorists aware of the scheduled projects. Motorists, pedestrians and nonmotorized transportation users are urged to use extreme caution in the work zone.
