Swift Avenue to close over weekendSwift Avenue will be closed along one block from Hull Avenue to Caswell Place for construction this weekend.
Barricades will be set up at either end of the affected area, and no through traffic will be allowed. A detour will be set up on Powe Street to allow cars to navigate the area, according to a Duke News release. The street will be closed from 12 p.m. on Friday until 6 a.m on Monday while construction crews work to disassemble a crane.
The closure means that the C-2 bus route will not be able to make its usual stop on Swift in front of Town House Apartments on Friday afternoon. Bus routes will not be affected over the weekend, as the C-2 does not stop on Swift on weekends.
Access to Hull Avenue will still be available at the intersection of Hull and Swift, the press release said. University employees who need to use pick-up and drop-off services at The Little School at Duke, a full-day preschool for children of Duke employees located on Hull, will be able to do so.
Cars traveling from Broad Street onto Swift will possibly be redirected to the detour on Powe Street, according to the press release.
