Traffic Advisory: East Drive at Lejeune Boulevard will be closed because of a main water line break along Lejeune Boulevard. Traffic on Lejeune Blvd will not be affected, but residents of East and Miller Drives may need to take Liberty Drive to their homes.
The major break is at the intersection with Lejeune Boulevard and City crews are on site. It could take several hours to repair the line because of the size and the complexity of the repairs.

In case you were hoping to attending the flotilla on the New River tonight (Saturday, December 5, 2020), please know that the flotilla was recently cancelled by organizers.

It is with the deepest regret that we must announce the cancellation of our annual Christmas Flotilla scheduled for December 5. This would have been our 33rd annual flotilla.

We had hoped that our flotilla would provide some holiday normalcy and cheer to a year in which we have seen so many struggles and the cancellation of most of our other local annual holiday events. Unfortunately, the most recent Executive Order issued last week by the Governor put in place additional restrictions on outdoor events. Those additional restrictions, when implemented by local government officials, have made staging the flotilla impractical.

We know that so many of you look forward to the flotilla each year and include it in your annual holiday traditions. We promise that next year we will be back with the flotilla and it will be bigger and better than ever.

From all of us at the Jacksonville Breakfast Rotary Club, have a safe and Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years.

Holiday Cooking Tips: Jacksonville Fire & Emergency Services responds to about 25 kitchen fires a year. When preparing meals this holiday season, remember to never leave your stove unattended. It's always a good idea to have a Class B fire extinguisher or a lid close by in case a fire does break out.

Frying a turkey this year? Make sure your turkey is completely thawed before placing it in the fryer. Use your fryer outdoors only and a safe distance from buildings. Do not overfill or leave unattended, and keep pets & children away while in use.

Never pour fats, oils or grease down the drain, garbage disposal or into toilets. Doing so could cause pipes to clog and eventually back up into your home, causing a mess in your home and possibly sewage spills in the City. Put cooking fats, oils and grease in a can, jar or other container; let it cool and place in the trash.

Traffic Advisory: A portion of Onsville Drive will be closed entirely as a result of emergency repairs to a sewer line, Friday, November 20, 2020. Onsville Drive is a short drive with both ends connecting to Gum Branch Road. Onsville Drive travel up to Brenda Drive will be available on Friday, but not past the intersection of Brenda Drive in both directions.

A broken sewer line closed the intersection of Onsville Drive at Brenda Drive Tuesday, November 17. Crews will replace the line and repair the roadway on Friday. Completion is dependent on the weather and on conditions found when a deep trench is dug to replace the line.

Residents of Brenda Drive will be able to access their homes. Other locations along Onsville Drive will be accessible but the road will be closed at Brenda Drive from early Friday morning until the repairs are complete.

Travelers should consider entering Onsville Drive from the west if they desire to visit Aldersgate or Onsville Place. Travelers should consider entering Onsville Drive at Branchwood or at the east end at Gum Branch Road if they desire to visit any of the other locations.
