What to expect

Starting as soon as Monday, Jan. 9, South Charles Street will be closed between First Avenue South and Occidental Avenue South for up to 45 days. During this closure, drivers can use Royal Brougham Way or South King Street as alternative routes. A pedestrian route will be maintained around the work zone.

Construction is ongoing on the east side of First Avenue South between South Charles Street and South Dearborn Street. Occasional short-term sidewalk or lane closures and detours will occur to provide safe space for construction crews and equipment.
