Detours scheduled next week in Manatee County

Manatee County, Florida -- The Manatee County Government has announced that a small section of West University Parkway near 15th Street East, will be closed for up to eight days, beginning on Monday, while crews replace rail lines that cross the road. Traffic in the area will be rerouted from Feb. 28 through March 7, barring significant weather delays.

Seminole Gulf Railway will begin rail line repairs on Feb. 28. After the crossing has been rebuilt, Manatee County Public Works crews will repair the damaged pavement by installing reinforced steel and pouring concrete for a long lasting, durable surface.

Variable message boards with information on the closure were displayed yesterday. Detour signs will be displayed beginning Feb. 28. The closure is not expected to impact Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.

All business owners in the area were notified of the closure by phone and door hangers.

For more information on the road closure, call Chad Butzow, Deputy Director of Field Operations Services, at (941) 708-7432. For more information on Manatee County Government, visit online at www.mymanatee.org or call (941) 748-4501.
