Traffic Alert – Construction on Mound St between Osprey and 301

To improve traffic safety near the Lift Station 87 site, a temporary deceleration lane will be constructed adjacent to Mound Street (US 41) beginning June 4. Construction will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for approximately three days, during which there will be partial lane closures on Mound Street between Osprey Avenue and US 301. Motorists are advised to use caution in the area and follow all maintenance of traffic signs. Flaggers will also be in the area to help traffic move safely.

The Florida Department of Transportation approved construction of the temporary deceleration lane in its right-of-way to allow construction vehicles to safely diverge from the flow of traffic on Mound Street and enhance the safety of all motorists.  The temporary deceleration lane will be removed and the area restored before completion of the Lift Station 87 Phase 2 project.

If you have questions, please call the Lift Station 87 communications line at 941-356-8071.
