Motorists are advised to use caution when driving on Bay Boulevard near the city pier as the Florida Department of Transportation has begun construction of the boardwalk along the shoreline north of the pier.
Motorists can expect temporary intermittent lane closures with a flagging operation during the course of construction.
Access to the pier will be maintained during construction, but pedestrians can expect to use alternate paths to enter the pier during construction.
The boardwalk project is expected to finish by October, a DOT release said.
The DOT will have a westbound lane closure on State Road 684/Cortez Road at the 115th Street West intersection from 10 p.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, May 25, and Thursday, May 26.
From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly beginning May 23, and ending at 5 a.m. Friday, May 27, there will be intermittent closures of the eastbound and westbound lanes on the Cortez Bridge for a maintenance project.
Motorists are advised to use caution in the construction areas and expect delays during the maintenance time period.
