Clay County motorists should expect a road closure on Sandridge Road from Henley Road to Eagle Haven Drive from 4 a.m. on Tuesday, May 30 through August 1 for road reconstruction. The closure is part of a Bonded Transportation Program project.

This Lake Asbury project has been delayed, resulting in the road closure getting pushed back, according to a Clay County press release.

Traffic will be detoured via County Road 739 (Henley Road) and County Road 209 (Russell Road). Motorists are asked to be patient while driving in the area, go slowly and pay attention to the flag crews.

Contractors are coordinating with Clay County District Schools 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. Drivers should also anticipate daily, intermittent, single-lane closures on Sandridge Road from Eagle Haven Drive to Russell Road (County Road 209) for pond excavation, utility relocation and drainage work.

Additional ongoing projects:

Acorn Chase (Orange Park) – Motorists can anticipate daytime, single-lane closures on Acorn Chase between both sides of the Tower Oaks Drive loop for a drainage improvement project.

Aquarius Concourse (Orange Park)- Motorists can 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.
