The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will shift westbound traffic on State Road 200/A1A onto a new middle section of the Lofton Creek Bridge Friday, March 22 beginning at 9 p.m.
To ensure the safety of the traveling public and construction crews during the traffic shift, one eastbound and one westbound lane will be closed during that time in order to move a barrier wall. The lanes will be reopened to traffic once the barrier wall has been relocated.
Superior Construction was hired to complete this 4.9-mile $60 million widening project that runs from west of Rubin Davis Lane to East of County Road 107/O’Neil-Scott Road. Construction began in early 2016 and is expected to be completed in summer 2020, weather and schedule permitting.
This is part of a three-phase reconstruction project. The improvements include widening State Road 200/A1A from a 4-lane roadway to a 6-lane roadway with raised medians, curb and gutter, sidewalks, bicycle lanes and replacement of the Lofton Creek Bridge.
