Charlotte County is set to begin two construction projects this month.
On Oct. 12, construction of the ELK 4.56 control structure will begin Oct. 12 on Peachland Boulevard, between Strasburg Drive and Tennyson Ave. Multiple traffic reconfigurations will occur during the project to remove the existing water control structure and replace it with a concrete box culvert and weir.
Repairs to the Ainger Creek Bridge on C.R. 775 will begin Oct. 19. Multiple traffic reconfigurations will occur during the bridge repairs. Warning signs and/or flaggers will be in place to direct traffic.
Travelers will begin to experience intermittent, slow-moving traffic, and/or temporary delays within the construction limits and should allow extra time when planning to travel through this area, according to the officials.
