City Manager Bill Lindsey hopes clearer signage will help businesses affected by construction of the Officer Bradley A. Moody Memorial underpass.

The underpass on Marina Bay Park between Meeker Avenue and Regatta Boulevard will allow for a swifter flow of vehicular traffic, which has been interrupted by frequent train crossings. But area merchants say they’ve lost customers due to the construction, which began in September and is scheduled to last 18 months.

Lindsey’s latest report about the project might please neighbors.

“The process that contractor Gordon N. Ball has used for constructing this bridge has been so efficient that it appears that the bridge will be fully completed in only 4 weekends,” he wrote, adding that “two of six weekend closure windows may not be needed.”

Lindsey added, “One final weekend work window is required to place waterproofing materials on the new bridge, and this is anticipated to occur in mid-January,
weather permitting.”
