SR 739/Metro Parkway from Winkler Avenue to Hanson Street: Construction project: Work is underway to expand Metro Parkway to six lanes, expand one-half mile of Evans Avenue to three lanes northbound just south of Hanson Street, and build a new six-lane Metro Parkway bridge that crosses over the railroad tracks, Ten Mile Canal, and Palm Avenue. The roadway connects directly to Evans Avenue and Fowler Street (with a connection for southbound Fowler Street drivers who may choose to use Metro Parkway southbound). Work currently includes roadway and bridge construction and drainage.
- During the month of September motorists should expect slow moving tractor- trailers delivering bridge beams to the project. Tractor-trailers travel from I-75 west along Colonial Boulevard then travel north on Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard and Metro Parkway.
Motorists are to use caution and expect trucks to be entering and leaving the roadway. The contractor expects to complete work in fall 2015. The contractor is Conalvias USA.
