Dale Street lane reductions
Beginning Monday, March 30, Dale Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Carroll Avenue and University Avenue. All traffic will shift to the west side of the road. The median on Dale Street near University Avenue will be removed the week of March 30 to accommodate the traffic change.
