Penman Road to Close for Construction; Detours Planned for Area

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA — The northern portion of Penman Road at the Beach Boulevard intersection will be closed to perform complete pavement reconstruction from Tuesday, June 16, 2009 to Friday, June 19, 2009. The contractor will be working on Wednesday and Thursday night as well to expedite the process.

The pavement reconstruction consists of excavating 23 inches of roadway material under Penman Road, replacing it with new stabilizer and asphalt. Due to the depth of cut, and the 10 inches of asphalt required for the job, performing this operation on a lane by lane basis would take weeks and create a much more detrimental impact on the motorists. This is the same procedure used at 15th St, 20th St, and the south approach at Penman Road.

As a reminder to motorists, on-site electronic message signs have been placed in the construction area. The detour plan is as follows:

Penman Rd. northbound through Beach Blvd.
♦ Turn right at Beach Blvd., travel Beach Blvd. to 9th St.
♦ Turn Left on 9th St, travel 9th St. to 2nd Ave N.
