Eyes on the road

The Florida Department of Transportation posted the following notices for the week of April 9:

  • State Road 789/Gulf Drive from SR 64/Manatee Avenue to SR 684/Cortez Road: Manatee County crews are replacing force mains. Through April 30, directional drilling and installation of a force main will be underway along Gulf Drive, between 26th Street North and 28th Street North. Traffic lanes will be shifted to the west on Gulf Drive to allow for construction activities.

Also, installation of a 6-inch water main is underway along Avenue C from 24th Street North to 26th Street North. Crews will be installing water services across Avenue C, working from west to east, and northward from Gulf Drive to 26th Street North. Intermediate road closures will be in place along each segment to allow for these activities. The southbound exit from Avenue C onto Gulf Drive is temporarily closed. The roadway is only open in the northbound direction for local traffic and emergency vehicles between Gulf Drive and 22nd Street North while work is being performed.
