Resurfacing of Blanding Boulevard from Kingsley Avenue to Knight Boxx Road begins Monday, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

The $4.9 million, five-mile project also includes draining improvements, sidewalk repairs and signal upgrades. It also includes modifications of the median at Parkridge Avenue that will only allow travel one direction when crossing the median to minimize crashes at the intersection.

According to FDOT, more than 50,000 vehicles traveling this section of Blanding daily.

Lane closures for paving are all scheduled at night, affecting northbound lanes 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and southbound lanes 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. The project is expected to be complete in spring 2015.
