Beginning at about 9 a.m. Monday, June 18, Partin Settlement Road at State Road (S.R.) 500/U.S. Highway 192 in St. Cloud will be closed for approximately six weeks.

The purpose of the road closure is to allow the contractor to complete all drainage activities and roadway widening in that area.

U.S. 192 traffic needing to access Partin Settlement Road will be detoured via Simmons Road.

Electronic message boards have been installed to inform motorists about the road closure, and detour signs will guide traffic.

The work is part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to widen S.R. 500 (U.S. 192) from Aeronautical Drive to Budinger Avenue.

The work schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions. Project updates will be posted to the FDOT’s Central Florida website,

FDOT advises drivers to slow down and use extra caution in construction zones.
