FDOT held a public information meeting about bridge replacement projects in Bradford County on Tuesday, April 12th, 2016. The Department is proposing to replace the US 301/SR 200 Bridge over Alligator Creek in Starke, Florida.
The proposed bridge will have two 12-foot travel lanes , 5-foot bike lanes, and 6-foot sidewalks in each direction. Because the bridge is connecting to roadway sections that do not accommodate bike lanes, bike lanes are not provided beyond the bridge transitions.
During construction, traffic will be reduced to two-lane, two-way traffic. This can be accomplished due to the anticipated traffic reduction resulting from the construction of the Alternate Truck Route (which will be completed before this project starts).
The Department is also proposing to replace the CR-200A Bridge over Alligator Creek in Lawtey, Florida.
The proposed bridge will have two 11- foot travel lanes and 8-foot shoulders.
During construction, the road will be closed to through traffic and a detour route has been established. The ability to close the road will provide a shorter replacement time by allowing construc-tion crews to get the work done quicker without having to maintain traffic flow.
