State Road 87 N Paving Operations Set to Begin

Posted on June 16, 2020 by Staff reports

Paving operations on State Road (S.R.) 87 from south of Clear Creek to north of S.R. 4 in north Santa Rosa County are set to begin the week of June 22.

The $4.5-million project includes milling and resurfacing, replacement of damaged side drains and guardrail, and placement of new signs and pavement markings.

Motorists can expect intermittent daytime lane restrictions.  Lane closure restrictions will not be allowed near Allentown Road Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. during active school periods.  The 14-mile improvement project is anticipated to be complete winter 2020. 

All planned construction activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or re-scheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to use caution when entering from side roads, traveling through the work zone, and to watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the roadway.
