Construction Begins on Olean Boulevard from US 41 to Easy Street
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Oct. 16, 2019) – Construction of the Olean Boulevard Widening / Gertrude - Aaron Multi-Use Path project will begin Oct. 21. Giannetti Construction will begin installing the Maintenance of traffic devices on Olean Boulevard, between U.S. 41 and Easy Street. The mobilization of equipment will occur in preparation of construction. Travelers will begin to experience intermittent, slow-moving traffic, temporary delays and/or detours within the construction limits and should allow extra time when planning to travel through this area. Travelers are encouraged to choose an alternate route when possible.
The Olean Boulevard Widening project will widen Olean Boulevard from U.S. 41 to Easy Street. It is designed as a five-lane section with two travel lanes traveling in each direction and a continuous center left/right turn lane in the middle. The design also includes sidewalks on both sides of Olean Boulevard from Aaron Street to Easy Street. There is LED decorative lighting and new traffic signal systems with pedestrian crossings at Aaron Street and Harbor Boulevard.
This project will also include multi-use paths and utility expansions on Aaron Street and Gertrude Avenue with LED decorative lighting. The Olean Boulevard Widening / Gertrude - Aaron Multi-Use Path project is expected to be completed by the summer 2021.
