PINELLAS PARK, Fla — Southbound lanes on U.S.-19 in Pinellas Park will be closed early next week for construction, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. 

The southbound lanes on US-19 at Bryan Dairy Road/118thAvenue will be closed from 10 p.m. on Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday, weather permitting, the agency explained in a statement. 

FDOT says this closure is necessary for crews to perform overhead
work as part of the Gateway Expressway project.

A detour has already been mapped out for drivers who frequent the route impacted.

"All traffic traveling southbound on US-19 will be detoured to take the
Ulmerton Road exit onto southbound Frontage Road, turn right onto westbound Ulmerton Road, then left onto southbound 66th Street N.," FDOT says. "Motorists will continue southbound on 66th Street N, make a left turn onto eastbound Bryan Dairy Road, then make a right turn onto southbound Frontage Road to regain access to southbound US 19."

In addition, traffic headed westbound on Ulmerton Road that wishes to enter southbound US-19 will be detoured to continue straight through the US-19 overpass until they reach 66th Street North. There they will join the same path as the southbound US-19 detoured traffic, FDOT explains.

Drivers going northbound on US-19 don't have to worry about any changes. For more information on this project or the road closures, visit here.
