Construction is scheduled to begin Monday on University Boulevard from Bartram Drive East to Cesery Boulevard and on Atlantic Boulevard at the University Boulevard intersection.

The project includes removing and replacing the top layers of asphalt, traffic signal upgrades, roadway lighting, drainage improvements, sidewalk repairs, new signage, realignment of Lawrence Place and water service upgrades.

An additional right turn lane will be constructed on northbound University Boulevard to eastbound Atlantic Boulevard and an additional left turn lane on westbound Atlantic Boulevard to southbound University Boulevard.

Drivers can expect periodic single-lane closures during off-peak driving hours. Lane closures may occur from 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Monday through Sunday. Sidewalk closures may occur, but pedestrian detours will be provided.

Bus stop locations may be temporarily relocated during construction.

Florida Safety Contractors Inc. will complete the $2.8 million project this summer, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
