TRAFFIC CHANGES TO BEGIN ON HOLLY ROAD PROJECT STARTING FRIDAY
There has been plenty of construction activity along Holly Road from Rodd Field to Oso Parkway of late but starting on Friday, November 1, 2019, the city says that contractors will begin a recently announced project to reconstruct Holly Road between Rodd Field Road and Ennis Joslin Road.
The project will bring some much needed repairs to the sorely damaged road and will also widen Holly to include a continuous left turn lane, sidewalks, and curb and gutter. Plans also call for improvements to the water and drainage infrastructure in the rapidly growing corridor.
But there are some items that drivers will want to take notice of as the construction continues. The city says that Holly Road will be reduced to one lane, between Rodd Field Road and Ennis Joslin Road, throughout construction. Due to required drainage improvements in the initial phase of construction, contractors will be required to close North Oso Parkway at the Holly Road intersection.
The plan will call for new traffic control measures in the area which can be found below:
The following traffic control plan will be implemented, weather permitting, beginning Friday, November 1, 2019:
·Holly Road (Rodd Field Road to Ennis Joslin Road): The westbound lane will be closed. Traffic will be reduced to one lane, in the eastbound direction only.
·North Oso Parkway and Holly Road Intersection: North Oso Parkway will be closed at the intersection. Southbound traffic on Paul Jones Avenue will be detoured at Holly Road. Motorists traveling on North Oso Parkway are advised to follow the detour route at Wooldridge Road. Local access will be maintained between Wooldridge Road and Osprey Street for residents and visitors to the Oso Bay Wetlands Preserve Learning Center
