Lane Shifts on National Ave at Seminole

National Avenue at Seminole Street will continue to be reduced to one northbound and one southbound lane for pavement replacement on National Avenue.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday, June 28, 2010, the travel lanes will be shifted from the east side to the west side of National Avenue. During these lane shifts, Seminole Street east and west of National Avenue will be closed with only northbound and southbound through movements permitted at the intersection. The traffic signal will continue to be turned off during this work. The pavement replacement is scheduled for completion by Friday, July 23, 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.
