A Portion of Robert Walker Drive to Close for Three Months Starting September 18:
Traffic and Pedestrians Will Use Newly Created Road Instead
Starting Monday, September 18 (weather-permitting), Robert Walker Drive between the intersection of Davidson-Concord Road and the greenway crossing (just before entering into the Bailey Springs neighborhood) will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic for three months, as part of the WestBranch development construction process.
During this time, vehicular traffic will be routed onto WestBranch Parkway (a new road created by the developer) – please see area highlighted in yellow below. Pedestrian traffic will be able to access the greenway using the new sidewalk along Davidson-Concord Road from the intersection of Robert Walker Drive (see area highlighted in blue below).
“With the traffic pattern change, drivers will need to slow down for the adjustment, and be cognizant of school bus traffic and pedestrians that will be traveling in this area,” said Davidson Police Chief Penny Dunn. “We want to ensure that all of our citizens are safe during this construction period.”
