Perico Island road construction to start up

The Florida Department of Transportation last week announced plans for a road improvement project on State Road 64/Manatee Avenue starting in October from east of the Perico Harbor development to just east of Bristol Bay Drive.

The DOT said the $397,000 project would begin Oct. 6 and is expected to finish in December.

Improvements include removing old asphalt and resurfacing the roadway, drainage improvements, installation of new curbs and gutters, widening sidewalks and bike paths and widening of S.R. 64 at the Perico Bay Boulevard intersection.

The DOT advised motorists to use caution when driving in the area. A flagging operation will be in place at times when the contractor must close one lane of traffic for construction, the release said.

Superior Asphalt is the contractor for the approximately .6 mile-long project.
