Roadwork to Temporarily Close Section of Kingsway Road in Seffner
The closure will last for about three weeks, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
SEFFNER – Expect detours beginning this morning (Feb. 9) at Kingsway Road and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to make way for road improvements.
The Florida Department of Transportation’s contractor, Pepper Contracting Services, is widening Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (SR 574) from east of Parsons Avenue to east of Lakeview Avenue from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided roadway with medians.
Starting early this morning (Feb. 9), crews will begin construction of the new eastbound travel lanes. This work will require Kingsway Road to close just south of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for about three weeks. Northbound access to Kingsway Road from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard will remain open during this work along with the eastbound and westbound travel lanes.
During this closure, motorists will be detoured around the work zone using Lenna Avenue, Wheeler Road and Kingsway Road. Access to business and residential properties will be maintained; however, motorists will not be able to cross the railroad tracks during the closure.
Electronic message boards and detour signs will be used to help motorists traveling through the detour. Motorists should expect heavier than normal volumes of traffic on all of the roadways during this closure.
The $4.6 million project began Aug. 22 and is expected to finish this spring.
