(April 20, 2017)—The University of Miami advises the UM community that Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) contract crews will begin transferring and installing transmission lines on utility poles along Ponce de Leon Boulevard from S.W. 68th Street and Red Road, traveling northeast to Douglas and Bird roads.

    The work will begin on Monday, April 23, and continue through May 2. Crews will be on site from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

    During times of installation, northbound traffic on Ponce de Leon Boulevard will shift to one of the southbound lanes. Northbound and southbound traffic will be able to move along the roadway. During the work, flagmen and law enforcement personnel will redirect traffic; all motorists are urged to use caution when traveling near the area and be alert for workers. FPL does not anticipate any power interruptions associated with this project.

    The upgrades are expected to enhance the reliability of the area’s electrical grid and help speed power restoration efforts after severe weather conditions, including hurricanes.
