The next stage of the Golf Links Road four-laning is currently underway.
The section between Sunrise Boulevard and Riviera Drive is now closed to traffic. The road will be widened to four lanes and resurfaced.
After that section, the portion between Riviera and Linden Road will have the same work done, followed by the section between Sunrise and the Hospital entrance, and then the hospital entrance to Oliver Road.
Each portion is expected to take five to six weeks.
During the construction, detours will be put in place, with special subdivision access given to local traffic. In addition to the new and improved street, there will be walking trails, sidewalks and curbs added, as well as an improvement to storm and sanitary sewers.
The total price tag is $ 6.5 million.
