SanMarco-RialtoReopen8.14.19UPDATE 8/14: Stormwater improvements at the intersection of San Marco Boulevard and The Rialto have been completed. The intersection has been reopened to motorists. 







On Monday, Aug. 5, the City of Venice will begin excavating the intersection of San Marco Boulevard at The Rialto to replace a failing stormwater system. The San Marco/Rialto intersection will be closed for an estimated 2 weeks. All traffic will be required to detour with the exception of limited local traffic. The primary detour will be Palermo Place, located north of the intersection.

The Venice Regional Bayfront Health Emergency Room and parking garage will be available from U.S. 41 Business just north of the San Marco intersection. Ambulances and other emergency vehicles will access the Nokomis Avenue S. entry via Palermo Place by turning west from U.S. 41 Business. The Venice Car Wash will be accessible from the south. 

The below map shows road closures and alternate hospital routes.

This schedule is subject to change due to weather and unforeseen underground conditions.
