Press release from City of Gainesville
Below are the updated City of Gainesville traffic impacts scheduled for Aug. 20-27.
SW Sixth Street: P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School is constructing a new entrance off Southwest Sixth Street, near the 1200 block. Due to this construction, the middle (turn) lane on Southwest Sixth Street between Depot Avenue and Southwest 16th Avenue will be closed for approximately three months.
NW 14th Street: Northwest 14th Street will be closed from Northwest Third Avenue to Northwest Fourth Lane for drainage work.
NW Second Avenue: There is a single lane closure (eastbound) between the 1600-1700 block of Northwest Second Avenue until the beginning of August 2021. During this three-month lane closure, the road will be a designated one-way street for westbound traffic only.
NW First Avenue: The 1600-1700 block of Northwest First Avenue will be closed until 2022 to allow for construction of a new development.
SE Second Place: There is a single lane closure (westbound) on Southeast Second Place between Main Street and Southeast Second Street. Southeast Second Place will be a designated one-way street for eastbound traffic only. This closure is expected to last until the end of April 2022 to allow for development of a hotel.
SW Fifth Avenue: The 1200-1300 block of Southwest Fifth Avenue will be closed, tentatively until the end of June 2022.
SW Ninth Terrace: Southwest Ninth Terrace will be closed between Southwest First Avenue and University Avenue due to the construction of a new development. Construction is expected to last through August 2022.
SE Fourth Street: Southeast Fourth Street will be open to northbound traffic only from Williston Road to Depot Avenue. Provisions have been made to access Depot Park from Depot Avenue by heading south on Southeast Fourth Street. Vehicles exiting Depot Park should proceed north to the roundabout. Local traffic will be able to reach their homes and businesses by following the detour signs to Williston Road and heading northbound onto Southeast Fourth Street. Through traffic will be allowed northbound only from Williston Road. This is a major undertaking for the city and requires lane closures as construction is completed. Travelers should expect a variety of traffic configurations over the course of the project to facilitate the work.
The new northbound lane, cycle track, and sidewalk are open for use. A new southbound lane is being constructed as part of Phase III.
All lane and road closures are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions, such as inclement weather.
