CORAL SPRINGS, FL – If you drive on Coral Ridge Drive in Coral Springs, be prepared for lane closures in the coming months as a new road improvement project got underway this week.

According to the City of Coral Springs, drivers should expect single-lane closures on the northbound and southbound lanes of Coral Ridge Drive between Southgate Boulevard and Wyndham Circle from 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the duration of the project.

The project will widen the roadway for 6-foot bicycle lanes, construct sidewalks at existing gaps, and reconstruct sidewalk ramps, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

Improvements also include upgrading vehicle and pedestrian signals at West Atlantic Boulevard, Royal Palm Boulevard, and Wiles Road, modifying and relocating drainage structures, repairing bridge deck joints over the C-14 Canal, as well as milling and resurfacing, and adding pavement markings.

The project, which will cost an estimated $7.6 million, is expected to be finished by late 2022, according to the department.

But, according to Coral Springs, the project is set to be completed by the end of September.
