Daytime, single-lane closures on County Road 315A in Green Cove Springs will begin Monday, Feb. 6, as road work crews begin a milling and resurfacing project. Work is expected to take three to five days, weather permitting.

Ongoing roadwork continuing the week of Feb. 6:

Anabelle Island Subdivision (Green Cove Springs/Lake Asbury)- Intermittent, daytime, single-lane closures weekdays on County Road 209 and on Sandridge Road near the Anabelle Island subdivision for asphalt paving and utility work.

Work will take several more weeks to complete, Clay County Public Information Officer Annaleasa Winter said.

Aquarius Concourse (Orange Park)- Daytime, single-lane closures on Aquarius Concourse from Blairmore Boulevard West to Auriga Drive for a combined Clay County Utility Authority utility relocation and county road and drainage improvement project.

Work is expected to take 12 months to complete.

Camp Ridge Lane (Middleburg)- Crews are continuing repairs to the drainage structures in the 1300 block of Camp Ridge Lane. This project includes replacing the curb inlets and drainpipes from the intersection of Pine Ridge Parkway and moving them south 300 feet on Camp Ridge Lane to improve drainage and prevent flooding.

“Crews are making good progress on this project, but the completion date is yet to be determined,” Winter said.

Sandridge Road (Lake Asbury)– Crews are continuing work on Sandridge Road as part of the Bonded Transportation Program. Motorists should anticipate single-lane closures from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. for gas pipeline installation and utility relocation work on the north side of Sandridge Road from Henley Road to Russell Road (CR209).

This will be an ongoing project over the next several months, Winter said. Motorists are asked to be patient while in the area and watch for flaggers.

Scorpio Lane (Orange Park) – Anticipate a daytime road closure on Scorpio Lane between Blairmore Boulevard West and Aquarius Concourse weekdays through Thursday, Feb. 16, for drainage improvements and asphalt milling and resurfacing work.

Only local traffic will be allowed during the daytime road closure, Winter said.

Sharron Road (South of Middleburg) – Crews are continuing to make additional repairs on this project. The initial milling and resurfacing work on Sharon Road from State Road 21 (where the pavement ends) is complete, Winter said. Flaggers will be present.

Roadwork starting soon:

Botany Street (Doctors Inlet) – Work will begin within the next few weeks to replace the stormwater drainage system on Botany Street just west of Dalby Court, Winter said.

The project is anticipated to take up to 90 days to complete. No lane closures are anticipated, but flaggers will be present.

CSX Railroad Maintenance Project (Green Cove Springs)- CSX is conducting railroad track maintenance involving the replacement of the rail in the track along U.S. 17 in Green Cove Springs.

Work for this phase of the project will begin Feb. 13, and is expected to be complete on or around March 3, Winter said.

The listed crossings will be closed anywhere from three to five days, depending on the type of maintenance they are set to receive. Dates are highly subject to change with or without notice simply due to many of the unforeseen circumstances that can occur in the field once the work begins, Winter said. See impacted railroad crossings and tentative closure dates below.

  • Houston Street – Feb. 15
  • Walburg Street – Feb. 15
  • MLK Jr. Boulevard – Feb. 15
  • Center Street – Feb. 15
  • Oak Street – Feb. 21
  • Green Cove Avenue - Feb. 21

County Road 220 (Doctors Inlet) – Guardrail and bridge improvements are set to begin the week of Feb. 13 on the County Road 220 bridge over Little Black Creek.

Drivers can expect daytime, single-lane closures with flagging operations from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily once work begins. The posted speed limit in this area has been reduced to 35 miles per hour and radar speed signs are in place to advise motorists of their speed in the work zone, Winter said.

“Please avoid the area if you can and have patience if your route takes you through this section of County Road 220,” Winter said.

Henley Road (Lake Asbury) – Stormwater system upgrades are expected to begin the first week of March on Henley Road at the stormwater pond approximately 1,100 feet north of Orchard Walk Lane.

Both northbound lanes of Henley Road will be closed for construction from south of Orchard Walk Lane to approximately 1,000 feet north of the construction site, Winter said. The two existing southbound lanes on Henley Road will be temporarily shifted to one northbound and one southbound lane for the entire project.

During construction, the entranceway to Orchard Walk Lane will be closed to traffic and all in and out traffic will be detoured to the south entrance at Plantation Ridge, she said. The northbound sidewalk on Henley Road will be diverted but will remain open.

Work is expected to take up to three months to complete and will include milling and resurfacing.

Rosemary Street (Middleburg)- Crews will soon begin a paving project on Rosemary Street between Blanding Boulevard and Myrtle Street. Pre-military survey work is underway, and roadway paving will begin in the next few weeks, Winter said.

Motorists should anticipate daytime, single-lane closures once paving begins.
