Anticipated Lane Closures and Work for Route 26

Written on: June 15th, 2015 in Route 26

Below, for your use, is the anticipated work schedule and associated lane closures for work on the SR 26 Mainline Improvement Project along with Alternate Route directions and maps for the SR 26 corridor for those of you who may not be familiar with the area.

As a reminder, no lane closure restrictions are allowed on SR 26 during the day time hours until October 1, 2015. Construction activities requiring a lane restriction will occur Monday night through Friday morning from 9:00PM to 8:00AM each night.

Lane shifts consisting of maintaining one travel lane in each direction are permitted on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week between the hours of 6:00AM and 6:00PM.

Travel times to and from your destination may be quicker if you use one of the SR 26 Alternate Routes that were constructed prior to the start of the SR 26 Mainline Construction Project. The recently reconstructed roadways include:

• Burbage Road, from SR 17 to Windmill Drive
• Windmill Drive to SR 26 to Central Avenue
• Central Avenue, from Windmill Drive to Beaver Dam Road
• Beaver Dam Road, from Central Avenue to Muddy Neck Road
