MIAMI, Fla. – Beginning July 16 at 10 p.m., northbound and southbound travel lanes of SR A1A/South Roosevelt Boulevard, and the pedestrian pathway, will be closed nightly Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. from just east of Key West by the Sea to the east end of Smathers Beach. This closure allows workers to install stormwater drainage pipes across the roadway. The work is expected to be complete by late July. Motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians should plan an alternate route during these nightly closures.
During the road closure, access to the Key West International Airport, and businesses and residences east of the airport, will be from the east side of SR A1A/South Roosevelt Boulevard, via Flagler Avenue or SR US1/North Roosevelt Boulevard.
La Brisa Condominiums, Margaritaville Beach Resort and Key West by the Sea will be accessible from the west end of SR A1A/South Roosevelt Boulevard via Bertha Street.
Detour signage will be in place at Flagler Avenue, Bertha Street, First Street, the Key West International Airport and SR US1/North Roosevelt Boulevard.
The construction schedule may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
This work is part of the ongoing roadway project along SR A1A/South Roosevelt Boulevard from Bertha Street to the end of Smathers Beach.
