Construction is scheduled to begin next week on traffic signal upgrades on Beach Boulevard from Parental Home Road to Cortez Road.
The project includes new mast-arms and signals at Beach Boulevard and Parental Home Road, Foster Drive, Grove Park Boulevard, Barkley Road, Peach Drive, Forest Boulevard, Anniston Road, DeSalvo Road and Cortez Road. Other items of construction include roadway lighting, sidewalk repairs, new highway signage and the addition of a right turn lane from eastbound Beach Boulevard to Parental Home Road.
Traffic will be maintained in accordance with FDOT design standards throughout the project. Drivers can expect periodic single lane closures during off-peak driving hours. Lane closures may occur from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. seven days a week.
Sidewalk closures may occur during the project; however, pedestrian detours will be provided.
Bus stop locations may be temporarily relocated during construction in coordination with JTA.
Florida Safety Contractors, Inc. will complete this $3.8 million improvement project early 2020, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
The Florida Department of Transportation urges motorists to always follow the speed limit and stay within the limits of orange cones and barrels while traveling through construction zones.
