The existing road will then be milled and the first layers of new asphalt placed. Next, low-profile barrier wall will be placed in 2,000-foot sections in the median and crews will begin installation of nearly 14,000 feet of wastewater, reclaimed and potable water pipe. The final layer of asphalt will be placed on all six lanes at the end of the project.
Decorative landscaping will be added with trees including Crape Myrtles, Sabal Palms, Live Oaks, pines and cedars, as well as native shrubs.
Initially, work will take place on the roadway shoulders with minimal disruption to traffic. Expect traffic shifts to accommodate paving activities and turn-lane construction. Crews plan to work behind the barrier wall Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., while work at major intersections is scheduled to occur at night, Sunday through Thursday, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
