FROM THE CITY OF JACKSONVILLE: Traffic will be constricted on Country Club Road at Commerce Road as a result of a large hole that has formed around a temporary patch in the road. The constriction is expected to last until the weather clears.

The patch was put down after an emergency repair at the site, and the weather has prevented the temporary patch being replaced with a permanent patch. The heavy rains have also eroded the temporary patch. Crews cannot make the permanent patch until the weather clears and the temporary patch has become unsafe for vehicle traffic.

Travelers on Country Club Road from Western Boulevard toward Bell Fork Road will be affected by a lane diversion. The westbound traffic will be routed into the center lane until the repairs can be made.

Repairs cannot be made until the weather clears, so the traffic constriction is expected to be in place for some time.
