Road and Traffic Impacts for Jan. 8-15, 2021

Press release from City of Gainesville

Below are the updated City of Gainesville traffic impacts scheduled for Jan. 8-15. 

New Notices

NW 23rd Avenue: Northwest 23rd Avenue is closed from Northwest 23rd Terrace to Northwest 24th Street for drainage work. The work is expected to last approximately two weeks. 
SW Ninth Terrace: Southwest Ninth Terrace will be closed between Southwest First Avenue and University Avenue due to the construction of a new development. The exact date when construction will begin is pending, and the closure will last through approximately August 2022. 
 
Continuing Notices

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 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 was recently opened to traffic. The new cycle track and sidewalk is also open to pedestrians and bicyclists. Construction has now started for Phase III, which will construct the new southbound lane.  
All lane and road closures are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions, such as inclement weather.
