Zoey Fields

Clay County announced two new road projects for the week of July 25 and the resumption of work along Town Center Boulevard, which has been delayed due to supply availability issues.

A county milling and resurfacing project is set to begin Wednesday., July 27 on Louis Carter Road from County Road 218 to Centerwood Avenue. Motorists can expect daytime, single-lane closures with work expected to take 30 to 45 days to complete.

The county begins a second milling and resurfacing project Thursday, July 28 along Bald Eagle Road from U.S. 17 to Pine Avenue (County Road 15A), and on Pine Avenue from Los Palmas Drive to Spring Brook Drive. Motorists can expect daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers in work zone areas.

Additionally, the county’s installation of 1,000 feet of new sidewalk on the northbound side of Town Center Boulevard is back in progress after being delayed more than three weeks due to supply shortages. Motorists can anticipate daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on Town Center Boulevard from Thunderbolt Road to Calming Waters Drive. Work is estimated to take 60 days to complete, weather and supply availability permitting.

A new drainage improvement project is beginning soon along Pine Ridge Parkway, though a start date has not been determined yet. Crews will be cleaning and taking videos of the underground stormwater system in the area along Pine Ridge Parkway, Camp Ridge Lane and Creek Bluff Lane to the stormwater pine. Once work begins, it is expected to take approximately two weeks for completion.
