Florida: Interstate 10 Resurfacing Starts This Week in Madison County

Highway Construction | I-95 Exit GuideThe resurfacing of Interstate 10 in western Madison County begins this week with an 11-mile long project starting at the Jefferson County line and proceeding east. The work, under the
supervision of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will take approximately eight months to complete, ending this fall.

Daytime and nighttime lane closures are scheduled to occur Monday through Thursday. Lane closures are not allowed from 6 a.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Sunday because of heavy volumes of traffic
on weekends.

Paving operations will start in the westbound direction. Once the outside lane is repaved, work continues in the eastbound outside lane and then returns to the westbound direction to work on the
inside lane, before ending with the eastbound inside lane. The project also includes resurfacing the ramps at U.S. 221 (Exit 241), constructing two median crossovers and replacing guardrail where
needed. Lane closures on the ramps are not allowed from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Motorists may encounter uneven pavement until the project is completed. Once the bottom layer is replaced, a second layer of asphalt, known as the friction course, will be placed.

The speed limit is reduced to 60 mph during lane closures but will remain 70 mph at other times. Speeding fines are doubled in construction work zones when workers are present.

FDOT hired Peavy and Son Construction Company Inc., of Havana to complete the $8.8 million project.

An average of 31,000 vehicles travel each day on this section of I-10 which was last resurfaced in 2003.

FDOT also completed resurfacing 17 miles of I-10 in Madison County east of U.S. 221 (Exit 241) to east of State Road 53 (Exit 258) in December 2013.
