[ARCHIVED] Reconstruction projects continue on Gardenia and Magnolia Streets

ATTENTION: Residents, Police, Fire, EMS, School District, City Employees and others.

Work on the final part of Phase 2, Step 2 of Magnolia Street segments have been substantially completed and it now moves into the last phases of the project. Phase 3, Step 1 and Step 2 have been scheduled to begin on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 and will run concurrently.

In preparation of this move, Magnolia (800 block) will be opened for unimpeded two way traffic flow. This will be followed in short order by a total closure of the Gardenia segment between Magnolia and Cypress on Thursday, October 23, 2014. All traffic using this as route to the Plantation Drive and Highway access to points East will have to detour their travel to the Elm Street outlet to the Highway access road and the Oak Drive turn around or to the Center Way outlet to Dixie Drive.

On Monday, October 27, 2014 the recently completed half of the Magnolia (900 block – Even side) will be opened to traffic flow to the SH 332 Highway access road and reconstruction of the odd number side will begin.

This work activity will begin with traffic control barricade and signage being reset along the work zone to direct single lane traffic flow in the proper direction along the existing pavement of this segment.

In preparatory work for this, temporary parking stalls have been installed for those displaced by the work side closure. The open side residents will have normal use of their driveways for parking. Following this, the removal of the old pavement will be accompanied with installation of temporary pedestrian access crossings at designated locations.

We provided detailed information of the construction at the public town meeting held in December and will provide the affected property owners or public in general with any information as needed through all our available communication media and direct phone call to the Engineering Department at (979) 415-2414.

Expect the periodic traffic disruptions and restricted access through the work zone. Please observe construction zone regulations of the directional and speed limit signs being erected and being enforced by our police department. Please make every effort to make plans to use the alternate routes to your destinations. Please exercise all caution and we appreciate your patience during this construction period.
