Memorial Drive Road Closure

Highlands County's engineering and roads departments will close Memorial Drive at its intersection with College Drive starting 7 a.m., Monday, June 3rd.

According to Highlands County, road workers will send northbound traffic approaching Avon Park west toward SFSC on Independence Street. Motorists will then drive west on College Drive, where they can continue their trip north on U.S. 27.

Avon Park drivers heading south will get directed eastward at Cornell Street to State Road 17, where they can continue their trip to Sebring and points further south.

Motorists can opt to bypass Memorial Drive altogether by using State Road 17 or U.S. 27 for the entire length of their trip to and from Avon Park. The construction of the new Sebring Parkway roundabout requires closing the roadway. For more information, motorists may call Highlands County at 863-402-6529.
