Commuters along U.S. 19 in Clearwater are facing a major change starting Tuesday morning as they access businesses in the Countryside area.
As part of the ongoing construction between Sunset Point Road and Countryside Boulevard, commuters will only be able to access businesses on the west side of the roadway from a newly contructed frontage road.
Southbound motorists will not be able to turn from U.S. 19 directly into driveways or onto Enterprise Road. Instead, they will have to access the southbound frontage road, from either the Evans Road or State Road 580 exits.
Local traffic will use the frontage roads to access businesses while through traffic will remain on U.S. 19.
