Poplar Street
Reopens To
Oneway Traffic
Poplar Street between Se
cond and Trade Streets re
opened Tuesday, December 28
as a one-way, northbound faci
lity. The section of Poplar
Street between Trade and Six
th Streets will also be convert
ed to a one-way, northbound
street. At the same time Pine
and Mint Streets between Six
th and Second Streets will be
changed to a one-way, south
bound operation to create a
new one-way pair of streets in
the Uptown area.
For a safe transition from
two-way to one-way traffic,
the northbound lanes on Mint
and Pine Streets between Se
cond and Sixth Streets and the
southbound lanes of Poplar
Street between Sixth and
Trade Streets will be tempo
rarily barricaded. Access to
all property will be maintain
ed.
After the barricades are
installed, the City's Traffic
Engineering Department will
adjust traffic signals, signs
and pavement markings to
accomodate the new one-way
operation. This work will take
approximately 10 days. Moto
rists 'are advised to observe
the DO NOT ENTER,
WRONG WAY, NO RIGHT
TURN, NO LEFT TURN and
ONE WAY signs. When all
improvements are made the
barricades will be removed
and the entire street width will
be opened to one-way traffic
between Second and Sixth
Streets.
Poplar Street was closed to
traffic in the Spring of 1976 for
construction of a connector to
Mint Street and for widening
between Second and Trade
Streets. This project is funded
with 1973 Transportation
Bonds.
