Ashland Avenue To Remain Closed Longer Than First Anticipated

November 12, 2019

The closure of Ashland Avenue at the intersection of Nine Mile Road has been extended due to inclement weather. First expected to open November 9, officials now expect it to reopen November 20.

During the closure, crews are placing drainage pipes across the roadway as part of the drainage improvements associated with the Nine Mile Road widening project. Traffic is detoured to Stefani and 9 1/2 Mile roads.  Signs and variable message boards are in place to alert drivers of the temporary closure and direct traffic to the alternate routes.

All activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded by the Florida Department of Transportation  to obey the 35-mph speed limit and to use caution, especially at night, when traveling through the work zone.
