ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – The Alachua County Public Works Department is beginning construction on two roadway projects.
The first project is the resurfacing of NW/SW 91st Street from SW 8th Avenue to Newberry Road. This project includes milling and resurfacing the existing roadway, widening and relocating the existing sidewalk, and adding curb and gutter to portions of the road. A construction contract was awarded to DAB Constructors, Inc. for $1.3 million. Work will begin on June 13, 2011, and last through October 2011. The public should expect daily daytime lane closures and delays when traveling through this area.
The second project is the Main Street resurfacing and signalization project from NW 8th Avenue to NW 23rd Avenue. This project includes placing the final layer of asphalt on the roadway from NW 14th Avenue to just north of 16th Avenue, the reconstruction of the signals at NW 10th Avenue and NW 16th Avenue, sidewalk construction, and the placement of fiber-optic cable to connect the signals to the Traffic Management Center. A construction contract was awarded to APAC-Southeast for $1.2 million. Work will begin on June 20, 2011, and last through December 2011. Most of the work between NW 8th Avenue and NW 16th Avenue will take place at night, but the public should still expect delays when traveling through this area.
For more information on both of these projects, contact Chris Zeigler with the Alachua County Public Works Department at 352-548-1271.
