Work on a project to install sidewalks on a section of Olson Drive Northwest will start April 28. The work is expected to be completed in late June.
The 385-foot section is located to the west of the road’s intersection with Key Peninsula Highway Northwest near Key Center. Crews will also widen the road to accommodate new paved shoulders, and add curbs, gutters and storm drainage facilities.
Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The road may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during work hours.
