Palmer Road Detour…Oh Boy!

Hello Neighbors,

I thought I would share this info with you as we’re all going to have to do some adjusting to our daily traffic routing.  The folowing info was taken from the Sarasota County Gov.’s site on the Palmer Road detour.  (Click here for link)

Here is a snapshot from Google Maps and the information. Hope this helps.

Palmer Boulevard area, Sarasota: A road closure is scheduled to begin this week as construction continues on the Celery Fields Regional Stormwater Facility improvement and expansion project. Palmer Boulevard from east of Bell Road to east of Center Road is expected to be closed Monday, June 7, through Sunday, Aug. 22. Variable message signs about the upcoming closure already are installed on Palmer Boulevard. Traffic eastbound on Palmer Boulevard will be detoured to the north onto Bell Road, then east onto E. Sawgrass Road and diverted back onto Coburn Road, then north to Fruitville Road. Westbound traffic on Palmer Boulevard also will be detoured north to Fruitville Road via East Road.

Good Luck everyone getting around this chaos

Also, the sidewalk along the west side of Raymond Road from Palmer Boulevard south to the Raymond Road wooden bridge is closed. In addition, the sidewalk along the north side of Palmer Boulevard from Center Road to the gazebo is closed due to off-road equipment traffic. Pedestrians will need to use another route in this area. Construction equipment will be moving in and out of the Celery Fields on the northwest side of the Raymond Road wooden bridge. The project is expected to be completed in late fall of 2010.
