Staff estimates that the closure will be in effect until the opening of the new Independence Boulevard alignment occurs in about 50 days. The public will continue to have access to Glover Elementary on Court Road and the Meadowcreek subdivision at Waterfall Drive.

Traffic control devices and detour routes will be set up.

Court Road will remain closed from Moore Road to Staffordshire.

Independence Closure

On Thursday, July 5, 2018, Century Communities, under the supervision of the City, closed Court Road between Moore Road and Staffordshire Road to begin the Independence Boulevard Segment 1 Construction.

The City’s portion of the project of the Independence Boulevard Project began during the course of this project.

It is anticipated that the road will be out of service until the end of 2018 with an anticipated opening of the new Independence Boulevard segment in the first quarter of January 2019. Residents should expect traffic delays during construction.

The Independence Boulevard Segment 1 project consists of reconstructing the existing two-lane concrete roadway into a four-lane, divided concrete curb and gutter roadway from the Gulf Coast Water Authority (GCWA) Bridge, realigned to meet the intersection of Staffordshire Road and Independence Boulevard.

Staffordshire Road consists of reconstructing the existing two-lane asphalt roadway into a two-lane concrete curb and gutter roadway. Freese & Nichols, Inc. was selected for design, which is currently ongoing.
