SW 20 / 24th Avenue Mill and Resurface Project Is Currently On Hold

Thursday, March 30, 2006 12:00 AM

The SW 20/24th Avenue Mill and Resurface Project, at 50% completion, is currently on hold.

In December 2005, Alachua County was awarded a grant by the Office of Tourism Trade and Economic Development (OTTED) for the construction of a left turn lane into the Infinite Energy office located east of the Woodland Care Center. The mill and resurfacing of SW 20/24th Avenue has been put on hold while the necessary drainage structures (inlets, manholes and pipes) are fabricated and delivered for construction of the turn lane. It is estimated the delay will be approximately two to three weeks. Visible construction will resume at that time.

To avoid any additional costs not covered by the grant, the County has requested that the Contractor delay the installation of the final friction course layers until the turn lane has been completed. The Contractor will then pull the final friction course through the area, completing the paving portion of the job.
