Reed Drive Temporary Closures During Drainage Pipe Replacement

Phase 1 will begin (06/03/2020) and will involve closure of the street from the east side of the entrance to Sound of the Sea to the west side of the shopping center entrance closest to Heverly Drive.  This section will remain closed until progress on the project in this area is completed and should only effect thru traffic along Reed Drive.  Upon completion of this section, we will enter into the Phase 2 closure, which will entail closing the section of Reed Drive between Loon and the east side of shopping center entrance closest to Heverly Drive.  In order to ensure access to Heverly Drive remains open to residents, visitors and first responders;  a single lane of travel will be designated along the south side of Reed Drive to accommodate access.  These areas can be viewed on the attached map.

Work on this project is currently not being performed on the weekend; therefore, the barricades shall be removed and the detour signs covered each Friday afternoon when work has stopped to allow for normal traffic flow along Reed Drive on Saturday and Sunday.  The barricades will then be replaced and detour signs uncovered each Monday morning prior to work beginning on the project.  This is subject to change depending on the schedule of the project.

Phase 1:

  • Barracades will be placed:
    • Blocking Reed Drive beginning immediately east of entrance to Sound of the Sea.
    • Blocking Reed Drive beginning immediately west of the shopping center entrance closest to Heverly Drive.
  • Signage:
    • Detour/No thru Traffic sign placed at Reed and Mallard
    • Detour/No thru Traffic sign placed at Reed and Loon

Phase 2:

  • Barricades will be placed:
    • Blocking Reed Drive beginning immediately east of the shopping center entrance closest to Heverly Drive.
    • Blocking Reed Drive beginning at Loon Drive except for a single lane of travel along the south side of Reed Drive for access to Heverly Drive traffic only.  Traffic cones will be used to designate a single lane of travel along Reed Drive from Loon Drive to Heverly Drive.
  • Signage will be placed:
    • Detour/No thru Traffic sign placed at Reed and Mallard
    • Detour/No thru Traffic sign placed at Reed and Loon
    • “Heverly Drive Traffic Only” sign will be placed at the east end of this closure (Reed/Loon)

This plan is subject to adjustment based on unforeseen issues/problems that arise as the project progresses.  Dates and times for moving from Phase I to Phase 2 will be dictated by progress of the project which is subject to favorable weather conditions.
