In 2016, Venice voters approved a 30-million dollar project to resurface aging roadways in the city. This includes most of the roads in the downtown area and the one heading out to the jetty.
The construction company has been dividing the work into multiple sections. Drivers of these roadways will see major changes over the next two weeks. The contractor will be removing the old asphalt pavement and installing new asphalt pavement over the next two weeks on the following roadways:
Avenue des Parques
Alley between Tampa Avenue and Nokomis Avenue
Alley between Fiesole Street and San Marco Drive
Piazza Di Luna
In total, 70-lane miles are being resurfaced and that means roads with lanes going in both directions. Once this latest round of roadways is done, it will mark the halfway point for the project. The crews will make their way off the island towards the east end of the city of Venice.
