HOLIDAY — Traffic flow could improve with projects at Perrine Ranch Road intersections with Grand Boulevard and Seven Springs Boulevard in Holiday, Pasco County engineers hope.
Pasco is spending slightly more than $14 million on the two road projects, according to Deborah Bolduc, program administrator for the county’s Engineering Services Department.
The price tag of about $14,019,45 for the twin projects includes the route study, design, permitting and purchases of land for rights of way, as well as the actual construction, Bolduc said.
Improvements include the addition of turn lanes and sidewalk construction.
At Perrine Ranch Road and Grand Boulevard, crews have completed about 40 percent of the drainage work, utility relocation and installation of mast arms for traffic signals, Bolduc said.
The remainder of the work will focus on the roadway itself. Bolduc cautions drivers to expect changes in traffic patterns in the months ahead.
Crews should wrap up the project by the end of the year, Bolduc added.
At Perrine Perrine Ranch Road and Seven Springs Boulevard, laborers are just getting underway, Bolduc said. Crews have completed clearing the land while about 70 percent of utilities has been finished, she noted.
“This project is in the early stages of construction and will be completed in the spring of 2015,” Bolduc wrote in an email.
David Nelson Construction Co. is building both projects, Bolduc pointed out.
“These improvements will enhance the traffic flow and operation of the intersections,” Bolduc said.
