CHARLOTTE COUNTY TRAFFIC ADVISORY
NOTICE OF DATE CHANGE FOR DETOUR AND ROAD CLOSURE
for Midway Boulevard at the Port Charlotte Middle School area
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (June 14, 2017) – Please be advised that due to inclement weather, the current detour of Midway Boulevard traffic has been extended until the week of June 26. Midway Boulevard, in the vicinity of Port Charlotte Middle School between Alton Road and Orlando Boulevard, is closed for the installation of a sewer main in front of the school. The installation is delayed due to the heavy rainfall in the area, and the re-opening is dependent on the weather conditions.
This detour takes advantage of the school closure for the summer. Midway traffic in this area is being routed with a short detour using Alton Rd., Foote Avenue and Orlando Blvd. 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.
