ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - Alachua County Public Works is scheduled to begin the West University Avenue Sidewalk Project, which will construct a six foot wide concrete sidewalk along the south side of the road right-of-way, starting at the east side of SW 75th Street (Tower Road) and proceeding to the east to terminate at Castle Drive. Construction is to commence on Monday November 30, 2009, and is expected to be completed in four months.

The sidewalk will be half a mile long and will provide for safe pedestrian travel along West University Avenue.
