The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will begin a 7-mile resurfacing project on U.S. 441 in Alachua County. The $5.1 million resurfacing project will take place between the Columbia County line and Northwest 167th Boulevard in Alachua. In addition to milling and paving, work will include drainage improvements, shoulder work, replacement of traffic signal detectors, sidewalk work, and other incidental construction.
FDOT has hired Preferred Materials of Jacksonville to complete the project.
Most of the road work will be completed during the day, and motorists should expect delays while construction activities are taking place. However, lane closure restrictions are in place during peak travel times to reduce congestion.
Those restrictions include:
- No lane closures allowed from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. southbound and 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday northbound.
- No lane closures allowed on school days within 1,000 feet of Santa Fe High School, one hour before school begins to 30 minutes after school ends.
- No lane closures allowed within the High Springs city limits from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
