 10:05 a.m. 

ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners will discuss the Graded Roads Improvement Program on March 11, 2008, during the 5:00 p.m. evening Commission meeting in the Jack Durance Auditorium, Room 209 in the Alachua County Administration Building, 12 SE 1st Street, Gainesville.  County staff will present a draft 5-year capital improvements list for County unpaved roads.

The Graded Roads Improvement Program is a plan to apply hard surface treatments to some of the graded roads in Alachua County.  The seven factors for determining roads prioritization are:

  • Life-cycle maintenance cost
  • Traffic volumes
  • Public health
  • Safety
  • Effect on the environment
  • Roadway functional classification
  • Availability of right-of-way

The Commission has allocated 15% of the nickel local option gas tax, approved in June 2007, and instituted in January 2008, to fund this program.

Interested citizens are encouraged to attend and participate in this discussion.  For more information, contact Chris Zeigler, Senior Engineering Technician at 352-374-5245 ext. 271.
