The Collier County Sheriff’s Office is reposting this Collier County Government news release:
An intersection improvement project at White Boulevard and 23rd Street Southwest in Golden Gate Estates is scheduled to begin mobilization for construction next week.
The Collier County Board of Commissioners in June approved a contract for the project with Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, LLC, the lowest responsive bidder, for approximately $717,000.
The project will better align the intersection and enhance pedestrian features such as sidewalks and paved shoulders. The project is scheduled to be completed in six months.
Last summer Collier County completed the White Boulevard Bridge replacement over the Golden Gate Main Canal in this area. The intersection improvements were originally part of that project but due to budget constraints the intersection improvements had to be postponed.
The speed limit in the vicinity of the construction work has been reduced to 35 mph. Drivers are urged to stay alert and drive with caution.
To stay informed on any work that could affect your commute, check the Road Alert report which is available on the county’s website at www.colliergov.net/RoadAlert. To obtain electronic notices, sign up at http://www.colliergov.net/Index.aspx?page=15.
