Closures planned for 17th Avenue
Construction work will close 17th Avenue southbound, from north of the CSX railroad trestle (Graffiti Bridge) to Bayfront Parkway, Sunday, August 22 through Thursday, August 26 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, August 27 and continuing through 5 a.m. Monday, August 30, 17th Avenue will be closed in both directions between Graffiti Bridge and Bayfront Parkway.
The closures will allow crews to work on the 17th Avenue tie-in to the new interchange that is under construction at the foot of the Pensacola Bay Bridge.
During the closures, southbound traffic on 17th Avenue will be detoured to 14th Avenue using East Belmont Street. Pensacola Bay Bridge traffic destined for 17th Avenue northbound will be detoured to Ninth Avenue.
The planned activities are weather-dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to use caution, especially at night, when traveling through a work zone and to watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the roadway.
