For Immediate Release

National at Seminole Lane Closures, June 14-July 2

National Avenue at Seminole Street will be reduced to one northbound and one southbound lane beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, June 14, 2010, for pavement replacement along National Avenue.

During these lane reductions, Seminole Street west of National Avenue will remain closed. Southbound left turns from National onto Seminole and westbound left turns from Seminole onto National will be prohibited. This will allow for only northbound right turns onto Seminole Street and westbound right turns onto National Avenue. The traffic signal also will be turned off during this work. The pavement replacement is scheduled for completion by Friday, July 2, 2010, weather permitting.

This work is part of the National Avenue and Seminole Street intersection improvement project, which includes straightening of National to improve driver sightlines, new turn lanes and storm water drainage upgrades. The project is funded by the 1/4-cent Sales Tax for Capital Improvements, and is expected to be completed by autumn.
