Motorists are advised of a detour on Silkwood Court at U.S. 17/92 beginning around 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18. Crews anticipate removing the detour by 6:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan 21.
U.S. 17/92 traffic will be directed to continue to County Road 427 (North Ronald Reagan Boulevard). Silkwood Court traffic will be directed to North Ronald Reagan Boulevard and back to U.S. 17/92 at the traffic light. Please see attached the detour map.
