Curley Road in Wesley Chapel will be closed to through traffic from Oct. 21-Nov. 5 to make improvements as part of the widening project of SR 54.
Vehicles will be able to access areas north of the SR 54 and Curley intersection by using Boyette Road and Wells Road.
It will raise the elevation of Curley by about four feet at the intersection, according to Pasco County chief engineer James Widman. This is to make it match up with SR 54 once it is widened to six lanes.
“We decided it best to close the intersection during the construction because the traffic congestion would be too difficult to work around,” Widman said. “Closing it will let the builders get it done faster and safer for the workers.”
Widman said Pepper Contraction Services Inc., which is also doing the SR 54 widening, is completing the work on Curley. It is part of the original $28 million project and will cost no more public money to complete.
