Temporary Traffic Interruption on Placida Road

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (May 22, 2017) – The portion of Placida Road north of Cape Haze Drive through the area just north of Hacienda Del Mar will be temporarily closed or limited to one-lane traffic today.

A contractor installing water and sewer transmission lines inadvertently damaged a power line, so residents in the immediate area may be experiencing electrical outages. Florida Power & Light (FPL) has been called to address the situation, and the Sheriff’s Department is on the scene directing traffic. No associated injuries have been reported.

Non-local traffic is encouraged to avoid the area as temporary road closures may be necessary to repair the infrastructure. The Public Works Department reminds motorists to remain alert at all times and to exercise caution when traveling in the vicinity of construction zones.
