The FDOT project will add a right turn lane on James L. Redman Parkway.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) announced it will begin preliminary construction activities as part of its $3.3 million project to repave a .6 mile portion of James L. Redman Parkway between Charlie Griffin Road and Alexander Street. Additional improvements will include adding a right turn lane from southbound James L. Redman Parkway onto westbound Alexander Street and widening the existing right turn lane from Alexander Street onto southbound James L. Redman Parkway.
“The roadway is being resurfaced to keep the road in good condition for drivers,” said FDOT District Seven Communications Manager Kris Carson.
The project contractor, CW Roberts Contracting, Inc., will begin work Tuesday, May 30. Construction activities involving workers, vehicles, trucks and equipment will require lane closures, which will occur nightly between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.
“Drivers can expect lane closures but only in the late evenings so as not to disrupt traffic during the heavy peak times,” said Karson.
City officials remind motorists to wear safety belts and drive with caution, courtesy, common sense and patience as they travel through work zones. “Hopefully drivers will be prepared and give themselves a little extra time and have patience getting through the congested area,” said City Manager Bill McDaniel.
Drivers should also be aware of posted speed limit signs. Speeding fines are doubled in work zones.
The project has an expected completion date of early 2024.
