CHARLOTTE COUNTY TRAFFIC ADVISORY
NOTICE OF DETOUR AND ROAD CLOSURE
for Alton Road and Orlando Blvd north of Midway Blvd. Fri., July 7 - Mon., Aug. 7
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (July 5, 2017) – Please be advised that a short section of Alton Rd. and Orlando Blvd. traffic will be detoured effective Friday, July 7 through Monday, August 7. Alton Rd. and Orlando Blvd., on each side of Port Charlotte Middle School, will be closed for the construction of the new roadways connecting to Midway Blvd.
This detour takes advantage of the school closure for the summer. Alton Road and Orlando Blvd traffic in this area will be re-routed with a short detour using Inverness Street and Foot Ave. Travelers are encouraged to choose an alternate route when possible. Mail delivery, emergency services, and access to local residences will be maintained during construction.
This work is in conjunction with the Midway Phase II Widening Project.
Upon completion, Midway Boulevard will be a four lane roadway with center turn lanes, new sidewalks and a closed drainage system. Construction is projected to be complete in the fall of 2018.
More information about this project is available at www.MidwayUpdate.com.
On behalf of road construction crews, please drive safely.
