Florida Suspends I-10 Construction for Christmas and New Year’s Holiday

The Florida Department of Transportation has announced that it is suspending highway construction projects on I-10 in Northwest Florida for the upcoming holidays.

There will be no lane closures or other activities that impede traffic on state roads from Friday, December 23, 2016 through Monday, January 2, 2017. All major roads will be open to normal traffic.

Although no construction closures are scheduled over the holiday, existing state highway work zones will remain in effect and drivers may encounter construction workers and reduced speed limits. Motorists are reminded to use caution while traveling through work zones around barricades and equipment.

The Florida Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to allow extra travel time and to use extra caution in existing work zones along state highways. Drivers are urged to make sure they buckle up, along with their passengers. FDOT and other safety agencies also ask drivers to obey speed limits, get adequate rest before traveling, avoid distractions and never drink and drive.

Drivers also are urged to be prepared for unscheduled highway closures due to accidents, disabled vehicles or other events. Motorists should be alert to changing weather conditions while traveling.
