Construction is underway on the Forest Hill Blvd. C-13 Culvert Replacement Project, Village of Wellington officials announced last week.
The project, taking place just south of Wellington Trace, will narrow the existing four-lane section of Forest Hill Blvd. to two lanes in order to facilitate construction activities. Construction will take place Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with occasional evening utility projects. Work will be suspended on Sundays.
Delays are expected, so residents are advised to use extra caution while approaching this stretch of Forest Hill Blvd. Local and pass-through traffic is encouraged to use Wellington Trace or Big Blue Trace as alternatives to bypass the construction.
The Forest Hill Blvd. C-13 project will improve infrastructure on a portion of Forest Hill Blvd., including the existing culvert and the accompanying low-lying area near the culvert.
The project includes the replacement of an existing failing 30-inch culvert with a new 60-inch reinforced concrete culvert, and the reconstruction of approximately 820 linear feet of roadway, including striping and signage, concrete curbing and sidewalk, drainage piping and structures, landscaping, irrigation, grading and sodding. Project completion is expected in November. For more info., visit www.wellingtonfl.gov.
