CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Those driving on Rock Island Road through Coral Springs will experience lane closures in the coming months as a road improvement project kicks off on Tuesday.

From May 26 through some time in the fall, a stretch of the road from Sample Road to Wiles Road will be widened to accommodate five-foot bike lanes in each direction, according to the Florida Department of Transportation, which is handling the project.

Sidewalks will also be upgraded from asphalt to concrete, and a school crossing will be upgraded as well at NW 38th Court.

The cost of the project could not be determined on Monday.
