Why not wait until the San Marco / May Street project is completed?

It’s no secret that the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will launch work on the reconfiguration of the San Marco Avenue/San Carlos Avenue/May Street intersection this fall, a project estimated to last two to three years. Postponing the installation of the delineator posts until after the intersection work would only increase the volume of vehicles moving through Nelmar. 

Good News

The city’s traffic team is working with FDOT to limit most construction work to the night hours and to maintain two-way traffic, continuing with the level of service that is in place currently. The good news is that the new intersection design is planned to make backups a rare occurrence in the shorter term. Growth will, of course, continue to be a challenge for all roadways.
