Motorist Alert: Clay County begins road work for drainage repair, expect traffic delays

Zoey Fields

Clay County crews will soon begin road work along Camp Ridge Lane, which will result in traffic delays. The project will repair drainage structures in the 1300 block of Camp Ridge Lane. Work will include replacing the curb inlets and drainpipes from the intersection of Pine Ridge Parkway, south 300 feet on Camp Ridge Lane to improve drainage and prevent floods, County Public Information Officer Annaleasa Winter said.

Additionally, the county starts a new project Monday along County Road 218 for utility work.

Motorists should anticipate daytime, single-lane closures with flaggers on County Road 218 directly east and west of North Cocoa Avenue on Monday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for utility work, weather permitting.

The county is also preparing for road construction to begin soon as part of the Clay County Bonded Transportation Program. The projects are scheduled in Middleburg, Green Cove Springs and Lake Asbury.

Motorists should anticipate temporary lane closures and flagging operations once work begins, Winter said.

The first project scheduled to start construction is along County Road 218 in Middleburg from Cosmos Avenue to Pine Tree Lane. Crews will be designing and reconstructing an urban roadway section into four lanes with medians, turn lanes, bike lanes, curb and gutter installation and sidewalks, according to the Bonded Transportation Dashboard.

The project is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2022 and will take approximately two years to complete.
