Phase 1 of the County Road 12 project, from Airport Drive to County Road 2, is scheduled to open by the end of August. Phase 2 of the project, from Airport Drive to County Road 26, will not close until Phase 1 has reopened. More information on openings and closures will be shared once dates have been confirmed.

To expedite completion of the overall project, the Contractor has started fence relocation and grading operations on Phase 2 without impacting airport access. Over the next couple weeks, flaggers may be present on Phase 2 to allow grading work on Phase 2 to safely continue.

Drivers are reminded to allow more time when traveling to and from the airport as flagging operations could delay arrival times. Drivers should also reduce their speed and proceed with caution when traveling through this area.
