Gainesville traffic impacts: Part of NW First Avenue closing for 2 years

Below are the updated City of Gainesville traffic impacts scheduled for Aug. 28-Sept. 4. 
New Notices
NW First Avenue: Beginning Aug. 27, 2020, the 1600-1700 block of Northwest First Avenue will be closed to allow for construction of a new development. This will last for approximately 24 months.  
Continuing Notices 
SE Fourth Street: Southeast Fourth Street will be open to northbound traffic only from Williston Road to Depot Avenue. Provisions have been made to access Depot Park from Depot Avenue by heading south on Southeast Fourth Street. Vehicles exiting Depot Park should proceed north to the roundabout. Local traffic will be able to reach their homes and businesses by following the detour signs to Williston Road and heading northbound onto Southeast Fourth Street. Through traffic will be allowed northbound only from Williston Road. This is a major undertaking for the city and requires lane closures as construction is completed. Travelers should expect a variety of traffic configurations over the course of the project to facilitate the work. 

All lane and road closures are subject to change due to unforeseen conditions, such as inclement weather.
