Ribbon Cutting Scheduled for Opening of the Crawford Road Extension Nassau County,

Florida, October 27, 2021 – The Board of County Commissioners will host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. in celebration of the re-opening of the newly improved Crawford Rd. The improvements included paving the 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.

The $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. The County held a groundbreaking ceremony on November 2, 2020 and has been anxiously awaiting its completion.

District 4 County Commissioner and Chairman of the Board, Thomas Ford, “The paving of Crawford Road was long overdue. I am really excited for the citizens of Western Nassau. This investment not only makes our day-to-day lives better, but it also opens up the opportunity to attract high-wage jobs to our community. This project will benefit the citizens of Nassau for decades to come”.

The Ribbon Cutting will take place at the intersection of the previously paved portion of Crawford Rd. and the newly paved segment, approximately one (1) mile west of US301. The public is welcome to attend. If you have any questions, please contact Engineering Services at (904) 530-6225.
