It’s  O P E N

Beverle Rivera Drive today (8.16.17)

The new section of Beverle Rivera Drive is open today (8.16.17). The pavement is smooth with bright yellow lines.

The opening on Monday was delayed because of rain.

Huff N Puff Road is no longer a through street.

Jim Atkinson, Lakeland city manager, said the two new lanes that opened today paralleling  old Huff N Puff total about 22 feet of width (two eleven-foot lanes). “But this is only half of the finished roadway. The finished product will have two 12-foot lanes of traffic plus 10-foot shoulders on either side. The next part of the project is to remove the Huff N Puff roadbed and prepare it for paving to extend the width of what was opened today,” he said.

There is a message board alerting traffic to the newly opened street.
