ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – NW 156th Avenue northeast of Alachua is closed at two locations due to two culverts that were washed out overnight due to storms on Thursday afternoon.
The first closure is located at 6100 NW 156th Avenue approximately 2/3 mile east of CR 237 between CR 237 and NW 59th Drive. Public Works staff is working to repair this damage but the culvert had another failure during work efforts. The initial projection for reopening the road is sometime within the next week.
The second closure is located at 8000 NW 156th Avenue approximately 1/2 mile west of CR 237 between NW 90th Street and NW 78th Terrace. This section of road will be closed until further notice. A detour has been established sending traffic north on CR 237 to SR 235 and then east to Burnett’s Lake Road. See map above for detour route.
The culvert located at 8000 NW 156th Avenue is due for replacement. The County has completed plans for the replacement of the culvert and is preparing to go to bid. The bid and construction process will be accelerated due to the washout to reduce the length of time the road closure will be in effect.
