Zoey Fields

Four new road projects launch this week in Clay County with three expecting to take up to 60 days for completion, weather permitting. Resurfacing projects, stormwater system maintenance and sidewalk repairs are on the agenda for summer roadwork.

Motorists can anticipate daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on Kingsley Lake Drive (County Road 16A) from State Road 16 to State Road 16 for a sidewalk replacement project. Crews will be removing and entirely replacing the existing sidewalk on the south side of Kingsley Lake Drive. Work is expected to take up to 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting.

New sidewalk is also being paved along Town Center Boulevard from Thunderbolt Road to Calming Waters Drive. Lane closures are expected to begin in the next two weeks as crews prepare to install 1,000 new feet of sidewalk on the northbound side of Town Center Boulevard. The project will take up to 60 days, tentative to weather and supply availability, County Public Information Officer Annaleasa Winter said.

In addition to the sidewalk projects, there will be daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on North Ridge Drive near the cul-de-sac for a county drainage improvement project. This project will also include repaving and the installation of curbs and gutters. Work is expected to take up to 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting.

Crews will also be working on Pine Ridge Parkway, Camp Ridge Lane and Creek Bluff Lane for a county drainage improvement project. Drivers can expect daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers as workers clean and record videos of the underground stormwater pond and system in the area. Work is anticipated to take two weeks to complete.
