I and other City staff just returned from the pre-construction meeting for the STH 59 realignment project. While it seems like we've been talking about this forever (actually it's been planned for about five years now), the construction project will kick off next week. You can already see the staged construction trailer on the west side of STH 26.
For the most part, this project will have minimal impact on traffic patterns through the City during the construction process. However, there will be times when traffic will be impacted. We will use the blog and the City website to provide information on those traffic issues, so stay tuned.
