Southbound Alton Road detour between Michigan Avenue and Dade Boulevard should end soon

The roadwork on southbound Alton Road east of Sunset Harbour between Michigan Avenue and Dade Boulevard has backed up traffic on Alton for weeks.

It’s delayed traffic on Alton, shifted drivers to shortcut to Sunset Harbour via N. Bay Road, and generally been a mess.

But the Florida Department of Transportation says southound Alton is expected to reopen by the middle of next week (maybe Feb. 4…).

“Once reopened, two lanes of northbound and two lanes of southbound traffic will be restored in this area,” FDOT says. “Daytime lane closures may be used as needed while the contractor continues work.”

Work in the area includes water main, electrical, roadway and concrete construction.
