Lane closures planned for Forest Ridge Boulevard

Beginning on Monday, Jan. 3 and continuing for the first few months of 2022, county residents should expect single-lane closures on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.  along North Forest Ridge Boulevard, from County Road 486 / Norvell Bryant Highway to West Lake Beverly Drive.

An around-the-clock closure is also in place on northbound Forest Ridge Blvd from north of West Sugarmaple Lane to north of West Roosevelt Boulevard through approximately March 2022.

These closures are for construction of a “Safe Routes to Schools” sidewalk project that is expected to be completed in spring 2022.

To allow full roadway access during peak school drop-off and pickup times, lane closures will not be permitted on school days from 8:45am to 9:15am or 3:30pm to 4:00pm.
