Road Work on Glades Continues

We have seen a noticeable increase in traffic delays on Glades Road due to lane closures. FDOT’s latest description shows the work has intensified:

Restrictions: One lane will be closed, daily, westbound, 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., with one lane closed, eastbound, 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday through summer 2014. One lane will be closed, nightly, westbound, 6:30 p.m. until 7 a.m., with one lane closed, eastbound, 4:30 p.m. until 8:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday through summer 2014.

In recent days we posted pictures on our Facebook page of lane closures at the Lyons Road intersection. At least one reader also warned about substantial delays, saying: “Avoid Glades and Lyons.”

The latest closures are a bigger problem because they’re closing the middle lane, which is more awkward for drivers. Earlier in the project they stuck to the far right lane or the far left.

FDOT’s description of the project is:

Glades Road (CR 808) from State Road 7 to Lyons Road
Construction on this 1.5-mile project began Tuesday, January 7, 2014, in Boca Raton. Work consists of repaving the roadway, signalization upgrades, mast arm installation, curb, sidewalk, and guardrail upgrades, and sign, landscape and irrigation improvements. The project costs an estimated $2.4 million. The work is being performed by Weekley Asphalt Paving, Inc. and is expected to be completed fall 2014.

We note that while the description says “to Lyons Road”, we have seen work also on the east side of that intersection.
