Roadwork along North Ridge Drive has begun after the county waited four weeks for an available surveyor. The project is estimated to take 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting.
The project was awarded June 12 for a repaving project as well as the installation of curbs and gutters in the cul-de-sac area along North Ridge Drive. With surveying complete, work is expected to begin July 11.
The county did not respond to inquiries about who completed the surveying for the project to begin.
Two additional projects are delayed but expected to begin soon, County Public Information Officer Annaleasa Winter said; Pine Ridge Parkway in Middleburg and Town Center Boulevard in Fleming Island.
Work along Pine Ridge Parkway is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete, once delays have subsided. Motorists can anticipate 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, Winter said.
The project along Town Center Boulevard is expected to take 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting. 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.
