The Southern Boulevard (SR80) Bridge Replacement Project will result in the following impacts to traffic and marine waterways.
Flagler Drive from Southern Boulevard to Worth Court North is closed through summer 2020 as the roadway is reconstructed. Sidewalks also will be closed. Access will be maintained for local traffic only. Traffic will be detoured as follows:
Traffic going north on Flagler Drive should: Go west on Worth Court North to Washington Road; go north on Washington Road to Southern Boulevard; go east on Southern Boulevard to Flagler Drive.
Traffic going south on Flagler Drive should: Go west on Southern Boulevard to Washington Road; go south on Washington Road to Worth Court North; go east on Worth Court North to Flagler Drive.
The south sidewalk on Southern Boulevard, from Washington Road to Flagler Drive, will be closed through summer 2020 for drainage installation and reconstruction of the roadway.
There will be half-channel closures from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. A full channel opening may be requested if four-hour notice is provided by calling Project Superintendent Clay Bores at (407) 488-0738. During half-channel closures, the horizontal clearance through the bridge is 40 feet.
The schedule of channel restrictions is published in the U.S. Coast Guard’s Local Notice to Mariners at www.navcen.uscg.gov.
