Roadway in front of Castillo to close


The City of St Augustine reported to Historic City News that the two northbound lanes of South Castillo Drive would be closed for resurfacing operations starting at 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 12.

During the work period, the parking lot in front of Castillo de San Marcos will be closed in order to accommodate workers in the area from Cuna Street north to Orange Street. The signalized pedestrian crossings at Fort Alley and Cuna Street will also be closed.

Pedestrians will be diverted north to the signalized crosswalk at West Castillo and south of Cuna Street to the two un-signalized crosswalks serving the bay front area.

No horse carriages will be allowed in either direction on South Castillo Drive between Cuna Street and Orange Street.

The work is expected to be complete and the road reopened before 7:00 a.m. Thursday, September 13, Paul Williamson told reporters.
