The long-awaited North Blair Stone Extension opens between Park Avenue and Mahan Drive Tuesday night. City Commissioners will host a ceremony at 6 p.m. The public is invited and the road should open to the regular traffic a few hours later.
The new road is closed to trucks and will be Tallahassee’s most landscaped roadway. Construction on Blair Stone Road North began in August of 2001. Another segment should be open from Mahan to Miccosukee in a few months, with the final segment from Miccosukee to Capital Circle finishing in late 2004.
