Yorktowne Blvd Extension Is Now Open
Some of you may have noticed on your drive to work this morning, a change in the traffic pattern around the new BJ’s Wholesale Club in Port Orange. The Yorktowne Blvd extension is now open, running behind the new BJ’s from Dunlawton to Taylor Road at the entrance to Sky Lake Estates. This also means that the Taylor Road traffic pattern heading north has changed, eliminating the left (west) turn onto Dunlawton Avenue. Here are the permanent changes taking place today provided by Volusia County Road & Bridge:
- The northbound left-turn lanes on Taylor Branch Road to westbound Dunlawton Avenue (SR 421) will be closed permanently. All other movements at this intersection will remain open during and after the intersection modification.
- Yorktowne Boulevard Extension, between Dunlawton Avenue and Taylor Road, will be opened to traffic.
- A new traffic signal at the intersection of Yorktowne Boulevard Extension / Taylor Road / Boggs Ford Road will begin operating in steady mode (rather than flashing mode).
The BJ’s Gas Station is set to open as early as today, with the rest of the store opening within a month. These are going to be very busy intersections, so be sure to plan your route to work and school accordingly. What are your thoughts on these new changes?
