Lake Mary Road Reconstruction Project
6/23/17: Construction on the Federal Highway Administration’s Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFL)-managed Lake Mary Road Reconstruction Project continued this week with soil compaction and the installation of wing walls for the new box culvert extensions in the project’s shoulder widening section. Demolition of the northbound decking on Willow Valley Creek Bridge was completed and removal of the bridge’s old support girders got underway.
IMPORTANT:Traffic over the bridge is restricted to one lane and will be metered by traffic signals until the deck replacement is completed this fall. Vehicles with Oversized / Overweight (OSOW) loads that are wider than 10 feet will be prohibited from using bridge during this period due to the single-lane restrictions.
Crews are working during daylight hours, Monday - Saturday. Flaggers, signage and other traffic control measures will be in place as necessary and pilot cars will also be used to guide vehicles through the construction zone. Drivers along Lake Mary Road should expect delays of up to 30 minutes and are encouraged to use extra caution and obey posted speed limits though the construction zone. The project is expected to be completed this fall, weather permitting. CFL will be managing the entire project.
