Florida Avenue will remain closed through Oct. 7 as crews work to install stormwater infrastructure and replace a 12-inch water main between West Crest and East Frierson avenues. Nelson Construction understands the road closure has been difficult for businesses, their patrons and residents, and is working as quickly as safety and weather allow to complete this work. Remaining work includes installing curb inlets, installing and testing the new water line to ensure water quality, rebuilding and repaving the road.
Beginning Monday, Sept. 19, La Segunda Bakery and Ready 2 Go Motors are accessible from the south side of the closure, via Osborne Avenue, northbound on Florida Avenue to West Crest Avenue.
Spaddy’s Coffee, Vintage Post, Velvet Gypsy and Chocolate Pi are still accessible via southbound Florida Avenue from Hillsborough Avenue. Forever Beautiful Salon is accessible via Suwanee and Frierson avenues. Flaggers are on site to help motorists access businesses and navigate the construction site.
