Volusia County – Drivers are alerted to a weekend road closure of Reed Canal Road approaching U.S. 1/South Ridgewood Avenue in South Daytona. Reed Canal Road will be closed between Carmen Drive and U.S. 1 from about 9 p.m. Friday, May 18, through 6 a.m. Monday, May 21, to allow crews to replace a storm pipe under the road.

Residents and visitors of the Bristol Bay Condominiums will be able to access the Banana Cay Drive entrance coming east on Reed Canal Road from Carmen Drive.

During the closure, the posted detour will use Carmen Drive, Ridge Boulevard and U.S. 1. A map is attached for more information.

Electronic message boards and other signage will be used to direct motorists. Please note schedules may change. Construction updates are available on FDOT’s Central Florida website, Media inquiries should be directed to the District Five Public Information Office at 386-943-5479 or
