Island road work for Aug. 20-27

The Florida Department of Transportation maintenance and repair project of the Cortez Bridge is ongoing. The south sidewalk remains closed to pedestrians and cyclists.

The eastbound lane will be closed occasionally at night for repairs and a flagging operation for traffic will take place as needed. Night repairs are from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

The project is not expected to finish before late January.

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, and on Cortez Road.

The DOT said the eastbound right lane of Cortez Road at 106th Street West will be closed intermittently from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 25-27 as crews replace utility poles.

Additional pole replacement is scheduled this week at various locations on Cortez Road West from 103rd Street West to 119th Street West, the DOT said.

The eastbound lane of Cortez Road from the bridge approach to 103rd Street West will occasionally be closed for pole replacement and a flagging operation will be in place to direct traffic, the DOT said.
