Street Maintenance Program: Buddy Ganem Drive Project Update - traffic pattern change

Starting Monday, Aug. 20, traffic on Buddy Ganem Drive, from Wildcat Drive to Floerke Drive, will be ONE WAY ONLY westbound while that road is being reconstructed. Eastbound traffic from Floerke Drive to Wildcat Drive will be re-routed via Lackey Drive. This one-way traffic pattern will remain in effect for the duration of the road reconstru?ction project, which is scheduled to be completed by late October.

Work began on the project earlier this week. The contractor requested the switch to one-way traffic after it became apparent that working on this stretch of road under conditions that allowed two-way traffic presented safety concerns for drivers and crews. The new traffic pattern should be more convenient for bus traffic, while also allowing residents to get familiar with the traffic pattern. It also means that Phase I (road in front of Sports Complex) and Phase II (Floerke Drive to Sports Complex) can be constructed simultaneously. Phase III (from the Sports Complex to Wildcat Drive) is expected to start in late September, weather permitting.
