Motorist Alert: 3 road projects delayed in Clay County due to supply shortage

Zoey Fields

There are three roadwork delays due to supply availability issues in Clay County, causing the projects along North Ridge Drive, Park Ridge Parkway and Town Center Boulevard to take longer than anticipated.

Anticipate 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.

Additionally, Pine Ridge Parkway will have daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on Pine Ridge Parkway, Camp Ridge Lane, and Creek Bluff Lane to the stormwater pond for a county drainage improvement project. Crews will be cleaning and taking videos of the underground stormwater system in this area. Work was expected to take approximately two weeks to complete before supply delays. The county has not responded to requests inquiring how long the project may be delayed.

Motorists should also anticipate daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on Town Center Boulevard from Thunderbolt Road to Calming Waters Drive for the installation of 1,000 feet of new sidewalk on the northbound side. Lane closures are expected to begin soon, and the project is estimated to take up to 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting.
