Milton E. Proby Parkway Traffic Advisory Update Academy Blvd. Closed SCHEDULE REVISION


Due to anticipated change in the weather, the work that was originally scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 27, 2011 beginning at 2 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (noon) has been pushed forward to occur on Saturday, March 26, 2011 beginning at 2 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (noon).

During this time, Academy Boulevard from Bradley Road to Drennan Road will be closed to all north - and southbound traffic.  North bound Academy Boulevard traffic will be detoured at the Bradley Road Exit.  Southbound Academy Boulevard traffic will be detoured to eastbound Drennan Road to southbound Hancock Expressway.  Please see the attached map for details.  This closure is required for the placement of concrete on the new bridge over Academy Boulevard.  This bridge will eventually allow motorists traveling south on Academy Boulevard to access the new Milton E. Proby Parkway.   The detour route will be clearly marked for all thru traffic.   For safety reasons no vehicles will be allowed through the work area.
