The northbound and southbound directions of Cherry Laurel Drive between eastbound and westbound County Road (C.R.) 46A (H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway) closed Monday, January 8. A detour is in place for eastbound traffic on C.R. 46A to make a U-turn; motorists are advised to make a left turn after passing the 7-Eleven gas station. The closure is anticipated to remain in place until as late as early March. Construction crews will be completing storm drainage work.
