8/3/22: TOWN ASKS MOTORISTS TO AVOID SOUTH DOGWOOD TRAIL THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

South Dogwood Trail

The Town is asking people to avoid driving on South Dogwood Trail tomorrow and Friday, if they can, while construction crews work on the pavement along “a very narrow stretch of road” between Fairway Drive and East Dogwood Trail.

According to a special Town announcement released this afternoon, trucks and trailers will have a difficult time passing in this stretch, and all vehicles traveling on South Dogwood Trail will have “longer wait periods before being waived through the construction area.”

If you’ve driven on South Dogwood Trail this week, you already know to avoid it, if possible. The road has been reduced to one lane in areas under construction, and drivers are already experiencing long waits before they can pass through.

Town Manager Cliff Ogburn said Tuesday at the Town Council meeting that contractor Fred Smith Co. started its pavement maintenance work this week on South Dogwood Trail, instead of Twelfth Avenue, as was planned, because of “confusion.” The work on South Dogwood Trail was scheduled to be done Sept. 13-16 and Sept. 26–after the summer tourist season.
