Beginning Monday, Feb. 12, the two westbound lanes of Cumberland Boulevard will shift down to a single westbound lane starting at the intersection with Cumberland Parkway and continuing across the bridge over I-285. This shift will be in place for several weeks as work continues to widen Cumberland Boulevard from two lanes to three lanes in the westbound direction and to add left turn lane improvements at Cumberland Boulevard’s intersections with Cumberland Parkway, the Cumberland Mall entrance and Akers Mill Road. Signage and traffic control devices will be in place. Motorists should reduce their speed and exercise caution in the area.
Construction for the project is expected to be completed in October 2018.
