Coral Hills Drive and Sample Road intersection work is still underway. The water and sewer main pipes in the intersection required more time than anticipated, but the City’s contractor is moving ahead.
The construction crew will conduct water main tests and then complete all paving and road restoration by June 1st. There will be no intersection work during the Memorial Holiday weekend.
While we continue to focus on infrastructure improvements, remember that stores and restaurants are still open, and may be accessed by following the detour routes.
Thank you for your patience, and remember our construction schedule is subject to change due to unforeseen mechanical issues or weather delays.
The City of Coral Springs is taking a proactive approach toward replacing its aging infrastructure – both preventing costly sewer and water line breaks, and ensuring reliable service to existing customers as well as future development in the Downtown area.
As part of this initiative, Sample Road Water and Sewer Line Project will replace pipes more than 50 years old with new large-capacity water and sewer mains to prepare for a growing and revitalized downtown.
Coral Hills Drive intersection closed from 9pm-6am starting April 17
The hardest part of the Sample Road Water & Sewer Line Replacement is now over. All lanes on Sample Road are now open in both directions. Construction was completed on schedule and within budget. We thank you for your patience as we continue to improve the infrastructure that serves our residents, businesses and the future development of the Downtown area.
As part of the overall infrastructure improvement project, the next phase will involve construction at the Coral Hills Drive and Sample Road intersection.
Construction will begin at Coral Hills Drive, starting this Monday night, April 17. The intersection work will begin at 9 p.m. and continue until 6 a.m. Construction crews will begin on Sunday nights through Thursday nights. There will be no construction work in the intersections on Friday and Saturday nights.Local traffic will be diverted to detour routes using the following:
- Only local traffic will be allowed between University Drive to Coral Springs Drive with no access through the Coral Hills Drive intersection.
- West bound traffic on Sample Road will need to go to Wiles Road on the North or Royal Palm Boulevard on the south in order to go west.
- East bound traffic on Sample Road will need to go to Wiles Road on the north or Royal Palm Boulevard on the south in order to go east.
- Green routes are recommended detour routes. If you don’t have a need to be between Coral Hills Drive and Coral Springs Drive, please avoid the area.
