Can drive to businesses with “Road Closed Local Traffic Only” Signs

The project team has developed a public service announcement to help the public navigate through the project limits and better understand construction road traffic signs, specifically “road closed local traffic only” or “road closed to thru traffic” signs. You can still get to businesses!

Road Closed Local Traffic Only Signs

Customers of businesses in South Cape can still travel on SE 47th Terrace to get to businesses when they see “road closed local traffic only” or “road closed to thru traffic” signs. These are maintenance of traffic (MOT) signs mandated for any ongoing roadway construction projects according to the Florida Department of Transportation Design Standards and the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) by the Florida Highway Administration.

Vehicles can travel westbound at the intersection of SE 15th Avenue and SE 47thTerrace past the maintenance of traffic signs. Use caution, drive slowly and follow the regular traffic signs as you would usually.  Now that underground utility construction is active in the block from SE 15th Avenue to Vincennes Boulevard, we will keep the community updated about any changes to traffic patterns that may be required.
