SR 542 FROM FIRST STREET TO BUCKEYE LOOP ROAD FDOT PROJECT

Posted November 8th, 2018

Beginning Monday, November 12, FDOT will be working on SR 542 from 1st Street to Buckeye Loop Road.  Please watch for nighttime/overnight lane closures from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. as crews place barrier wall, place pedestrian channelizing devices, re-stripe the roadway and shift traffic on SR 542 (Central Avenue) between First Street and Lake Elbert Drive.

This FDOT project includes widening and adding a center turn lane, sidewalk and bike lanes; upgrading existing signal equipment; placing two mid-block crosswalks; and installing new water and sewer lines. Watson Civil Construction, Inc. is the contractor. Expected completion is fall 2020.
