Clint Moore Road has been closed from Northwest Second Avenue to Congress Avenue since March as part of a major construction project to add express lanes along I-95. As part of the construction, the Clint Moore Road overpass is being demolished and rebuilt.

While the road is closed, the city is using the opportunity to improve the sidewalks from El Rio Trail to Northwest Second Avenue.

Clint Moore Road is scheduled to reopen in 2022.
