The Southwest Florida Water Management District (District) has scheduled maintenance work to the Lake Keystone water conservation structure. The District will build a temporary dam around the structure to dewater or “dry out” the work area.
The work will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and is scheduled to begin Feb. 18 and should be completed by March 8. During that time, drivers may experience occasional short-term traffic congestion as equipment is moved in and out of the area. Drivers are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings and use caution as the work area will be very close to oncoming traffic.
The Lake Keystone structure is located on Tarpon Springs Road between Keystone Manor Road and Wayne Road at the northern tip of Lake Keystone. The District will actively monitor water levels in Lake Keystone and Lake Island Ford during the construction.
For additional questions, please call the District at (352) 796-7211.
