pr A few weeks ago, construction crews resumed work on most of the project area after the March 7 incident when a subcontractor struck a 20-inch high pressure gas line. Work will not resume at the area of the gas line until the permanent repairs to the 20-inch high pressure gas line are complete. However, residents and motorists can expect some changes in the area beginning late April early May.
On Frazee Road southbound traffic at the intersection of Frazee Road/Friars Road will have a dedicated left turn pocket to eastbound Friars Road and through lane with an option right. Northbound Frazee Road will have a dedicated left turn pocket to westbound Friars Road and a through lane with an option right.
On Friars Road, between Frazee Road and Avenida De Las Tiendas, the lanes will be narrowed and shifted south. Crews will remove the concrete island and replace it with a temporary striped median.
These temporary changes on Frazee and Friars roads are expected to remain in place until November 18, the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
Beginning possibly the week of May 13 from 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m., all lanes of southbound or northbound SR-163 will close between Genesee Avenue and Friars Road. Motorists will be detoured to routes on the attached map.
Please note this schedule could change depending on scheduling and weather conditions.
