Island road work for July 16-22

The Florida Department of Transportation maintenance project for the Cortez Bridge continues. Crews this week will work on the bridge surface and repair the eastbound sidewalk.

Nighttime lane closures of the eastbound lane and a flagging operation will occur occasionally from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights.

The project is not expected to finish before late January.

Work also is continuing on a DOT project on Manatee Avenue West/State Road 64 from the Perico Bay Club to Palma Sola Boulevard. Crews are resurfacing, installing new sidewalks and completing drainage improvements.

Any lane closures will be accompanied by a flagging operation, the DOT said. The project is expected to be completed in late summer.

The DOT also reported Florida Power and Light continues to replace power poles on Gulf Drive/State Road 789 from the Cortez Road intersection to 28th Street in Holmes Beach.

Motorists should expect lane closures from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through July 25.

FP&L crews also are replacing power poles along Cortez Road/State Road 684 from 103rd Street West to 119th Street West through July 25.

Motorists are advised speed limits may be reduced and to drive with caution in work areas.
