The good news coming up this Labor Day is not only that you have the day off. The widening project on Beach Boulevard between Hodges and San Pablo should be done by then.
Mike Goldman with the Florida Department of Transportation says crews are "widening it from two to three lanes in each direction from four lanes to six lanes".
Goldman says this is significant because "there have been orange cones on various parts of Beach Boulevard for well over 20 years". He says, "So finally Beach Boulevard is going to be free of orange cones". However, the end of construction means "more traffic" on the roadway.
