News Release: City of Tallahassee
Tallahassee, Fla. -- In the past, a ride down Old Bainbridge Road was a rocky affair. Jolts from bumps and dips threatened at nearly every turn. Car suspensions continued to be tested over the past 11 months during construction while the City replaced the water infrastructure and Leon County repaved the road. Today, that ride is a little steadier, and by the end of next week, drivers will be able to safely swig a sip of coffee as they smoothly glide into downtown.
As part of the finishing touches to complete the water infrastructure improvements, Old Bainbridge Road will be closed from Brevard Street to Fourth Avenue from 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 10, through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11. During the closure an underground utility contractor will be completing final utility adjustments. Local access will be maintained during the closure to businesses and residents in the affected area. Detour signs will be in place to direct motorist around the closure using adjacent streets.
This is the last planned closure associated with the City’s work on Old Bainbridge Road. The community’s patience during the project was appreciated. While your mechanic might weep, your car’s suspension system can rejoice.
