The contractor on the Newcastle Transit Center project will begin a major closure of Coal Creek Parkway on Monday to complete a section of work at the intersection of Newcastle Way.

Although this work will help shave a full month from the total project’s timeline, it will close Coal Creek Parkway for seven days from Newcastle Way to Golf Club Road.

Work begins at 6 a.m. Monday, July 20, and will be finished in time for the morning commute Monday, July 27.

Northbound and southbound traffic on Coal Creek Parkway will be detoured onto Newcastle Way and Golf Club Road to reconnect with the parkway. Expect major delays through downtown Newcastle during the week.
