County Road 216, Cathedral Oak Parkway (Green Cove Springs)- Crews will soon begin construction on this Bonded Transportation Program project to construct a new 3.3-mile, two-lane roadway from State Road 23 to the intersection of County Road 315 and Maryland Avenue. The project will include a grass median, bike lanes, and sidewalks, Clay County Senior Multimedia and Public Information Officer Jessica Barreto said.

Grove Park Lane and Grove Park Drive North (Orange Park) - Anticipate daytime, single-lane closures starting soon on Grove Park Lane and Grove Park Drive North from Grove Park Drive East to Grove Park Drive West for a drainage improvement project.

Habitat Drive (Middleburg) – Anticipate daytime, single-lane closures starting soon on Habitat Drive from Baxley Road to Yukon Court for a drainage improvement project. Phase one of this project will include repairing and lowering the drainage structures, Barreto said.

Industrial Loop (Orange Park) – County crews will soon begin drainage repairs on Industrial Loop in the Bellair-Meadowbrook Terrace area. Anticipate daytime single-lane closures on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. once work begins.

Shedd Road (Green Cove Springs) - Crews will soon begin drainage repairs on Shedd Road between County Road 315 and U.S. 17. Motorists should anticipate a road closure and detour to start in April, Barreto said.

Ongoing county projects:

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

Aquarius Concourse (Orange Park)- Anticipate 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.

Henley Road (Lake Asbury) – Motorists should anticipate daily, intermittent, single-lane closures for stormwater system upgrades at the 2700 block of Henley Road north of Orchard Walk Lane.

Both northbound lanes of Henley Road will be closed for construction and 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, Barreto said.

The northbound sidewalk on Henley Road will be diverted but remain open. Drivers are asked to be patient while driving in the area, go slowly and pay attention to the flag crews, she said.

Oak Drive South (Fleming Island) – Anticipate daytime single-lane closures on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Oak Drive South in Fleming Island for drainage improvement work. Work will take approximately 60 days to complete, Barreto said.

Rosemary Street and Myrtle Street (Middleburg)- Daytime, single-lane closures continuing for a paving project on Rosemary Street between Blanding Boulevard and Myrtle Street and on Myrtle Street from Indigo Avenue to Alligator Boulevard. Crews will be paving the week of March 27, Barreto said.

Sandridge Road (Lake Asbury)– Anticipate daily, intermittent, single-lane closures on Sandridge Road from Henley Road to Russell Road (County Road 209) for utility relocation and installation work.

Contractors are coordinating with the school board and intend to complete road construction in front of the Lake Asbury elementary and junior high schools during the summer break to minimize traffic impacts. One road closure and one detour are scheduled to begin in late May for this Bonded Transportation Program project, Barreto said. Flaggers will also be present during construction.

Sharron Road (South of Middleburg) – Milling and resurfacing work was completed on Sharron Road from State Road 21 to where the pavement ends. The striping work is complete, and crews will be making additional project repairs the week of March 27.
