FDOT closes Long Bay Road for 90 days

Posted

MIDDLEBURG – As part of the Blanding Boulevard widening project from Long Bay Road to Allie Murray Road, The Florida Department of Transportation will close a portion of Long Bay Road for at least 90 days.

Detours started Sept. 9. During the closure, motorists will be rerouted to County Road 220 and Blanding Boulevard. Lazy Acres Road will remain open for use by local traffic.

Construction on the project began in January 2019. Project improvements include widening the road from four lanes to six lanes; full reconstruction of the roadway; adding four-foot wide bike lanes in both directions; adding six-foot wide sidewalks in both directions; replacement of traffic signals and street lights; construction of a new drainage system; and realignment of the intersections at Long Bay Road and County Road 220 Access Road.

Contractor R.B. Baker Construction Company is expected to complete the $19.1 million project in spring 2021, weather and schedule permitting.
