Construction project: Crews continue work to expand two-lane US 41 to six lanes from SR 951 to Joseph Lane and to four lanes from Joseph Lane to Greenway Road. A 30-foot median will separate northbound and southbound travel lanes. The project also includes a 10-foot multi-use pathway along southbound travel lanes and a six-foot sidewalk parallel to northbound lanes. Median openings spaced throughout the project allow for left turns and U-turns. Crews also are replacing the traffic signal at Manatee Road. Vehicles will now use the new roadway from Naples Reserve Boulevard to Greenway Road. Motorists exiting driveways and side streets in this area should use caution, as traffic is now closer to the south side of the corridor. Motorists should expect lane closures from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday for crews to widen the lanes. Vehicles use the new roadway from east of CR 951 to Naples Reserve Boulevard. The bus stops shift to allow the contractor to build the new roadway. Motorists exiting driveways and side streets in this area should use caution, as traffic is now closer to the south side of the corridor. Crews are currently relocating utilities, constructing culverts, installing underground storm drainage, and completing earthwork. Drivers should be aware of construction vehicles and equipment entering and exiting the roadway. The contractor expects to complete work in fall 2016. The design/build team is Wantman Group Inc./Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, LLC. (Note: updates normally come in on Thursdays or Fridays.)

Procedure for TURNING OFF WATER at the Backflow Preventer - For residents of the Port who want to turn their water service off while they are away for extended periods of time please follow the following instructions: To extend the service life of the backflow preventer you will turn off the valve after the backflow. This will ensure that the gaskets, o-rings, etc… will remain under pressure and wet while the water is off to your home. In the picture you see that the side of the backflow is marked with the direction of flow. The valve located at the discharge side of the backflow is the proper valve to shut, as shown in the picture. Not all properties are equiped with the Backflow Preventer, it is an on-going project to get them all done.
