Verona Road Project weekly construction update: August 25 to 29

August 22, 2014

All lane restrictions and work operations are weather-dependent and subject to change.

Over the past few weeks, various construction projects related to the Verona Road (US 18/151) Project were completed, and will no longer be included in these weekly construction updates. Those projects involved Beltline lane closures between Gammon Road and Whitney Way, Seminole Highway and Todd Drive, intersection improvements, and more.

Access remains open to area businesses and neighborhoods. Regardless of any roadwork inconvenience, please continue to patronize area businesses in the Verona Road work zone.

Note: The Verona Road work zone speed limit is 30 mph between the Beltline and Raymond Road. For everyone's safety, please drive with caution through the work zones.
