Project Overview: Weekley Asphalt Paving, Inc. began construction the second week of September 2018 on Nova Drive beginning east at Davie Road and progressing west to SW 76th Avenue. The work is expected to be completed March 2020.
The scope of the work consists of widening the existing multi-lane road configuration throughout the corridor to accommodate a combination of shared and designated bike lanes, intermittent landscape medians, turn lanes and the construction of a traffic roundabout 200ft west of SW 71st Terrace together with the expansion to a four lane divided section with landscape medians from Davie Road to College Avenue. Existing drainage facilities will be modified, and new drainage facilities will be added. New sidewalks, curbing, curb ramps, roadway lighting, landscaping with irrigation, new signalization, as well as road construction, milling, resurfacing, and new pavement markings and signage will be constructed.
Traffic will be impacted throughout the duration of the project. Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes other than Nova Drive to their destinations, whenever possible. Two lane, bi-directional traffic will be maintained whenever feasible, however, there will be periods where traffic will be reduced to a shared single lane with flag personnel or a road closure with traffic detour signs. Please expect delays.
Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated. We apologize for any inconvenience as we complete these improvements in your neighborhood.
