Road work on SR-20

The Florida Department of Transportation District 3 issued two different alerts concerning SR-20, also known as John Sims Parkway.

Tree Trimming

The department says commuters will have to deal with periodic eastbound lane closures from 9AM to 3PM from Monday (May 2) to Wednesday (May 4) while crews trim trees.
