The Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division will be installing new asphalt and pavement markings in Coral Springs and construction activities may cause temporary lane closures.
Located along several segments of Riverside Drive near Atlantic Boulevard, Coral Ridge Drive and University Drive, work began July 8 and will be substantially complete by August 13, barring any unforeseen conditions or weather delays.
The purpose of the project is to improve travel conditions for motorists and cyclists by adding new asphalt and pavement markings. Most of the work will be accomplished during the school’s summer break to minimize the impact to the nearby Riverside Elementary School, Ramblewood Middle School, and J.P. Taravella High School.
Construction activities will occur during the day to lessen impacts to nearby residential areas. During the project, Riverside Drive will experience temporary lane closures during off-peak daytime hours. However, at least one lane in each direction will be open to traffic. Access to sidewalks and driveways will be maintained and variable message signs will be posted in advance of and during construction to warn affected motorists and pedestrians.
