The westbound lanes of Siesta Drive between U.S. 41 and Honeysuckle Drive are closed as crews install a water line, the city announced this week.

The closure is scheduled to remain in place through September. The city announced a pair of detour routes while construction is ongoing:

  • For drivers traveling southbound on U.S. 41, use Bay Road to go west.
  • For drivers traveling northbound, use Webber Street.

The water line project is intended to improve the flow and resiliency of the utility system, according to a city release.
