11/10/21 @ 4:30 p.m. – A Ribbon Cutting was held today in celebration the Crawford Road improvements project which consisted of paving the existing 6.5 mile-long, two lane dirt road connecting County Road 121 with the existing paved portion of Crawford Road, just west of US 301.

This $6.95 million project is critical to improving mobility, promoting job growth and attracting industry to western Nassau County. The project is strategically located to become a future industrial and technological epicenter supported logistically by a robust roadway and railway transportation hub. The Board entered into an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation in March 2014 for Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) grant funding to assist with project costs.

While we were hopeful the project would be completed by today’s Ribbon Cutting, the contractor had a few more items left to complete. However,we anticipate it being fully opened late next week.

Thank you to everyone who came out today to celebrate with us. If you have any questions about the project, please contact Engineering Services at (904) 530-6225.
