FDOT to Begin C.R. 250 Bridge
Replacement in Suwannee County

Open House scheduled for August 23; work to begin on September 10

Florida Department of

Live Oak - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will begin a bridge replacement project on County Road 250 in Suwannee County next month, weather permitting.

Prior to the start of construction, FDOT will host an open house for businesses and residents with questions regarding the upcoming project.

The bridge is located over the Suwannee River, on the border of Suwannee and Lafayette counties near Dowling Park. The $11.7 million project is expected to begin on September 10.

FDOT has hired Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., of Lake City, to handle the construction.

The existing bridge on County Road 250, which was built in the mid-1950s, has two 12-foot travel lanes with no shoulders. The replacement bridge, which will be located on the south side of the current bridge, will provide two 12-foot wide travel lanes and 10-foot shoulders.

During construction, the existing bridge will remain open to traffic. Once the new bridge is constructed, traffic will be shifted to the new roadway alignment and bridge, and allow the existing/former bridge to be demolished.

FDOT expects the project to be completed in late Spring 2020.

Prior to construction, FDOT will host an Open House from 5:00 to 7:00 PM on August 23 for those with questions about the potential impacts of construction. The meeting will take place at the Advent Christian Village’s Saw Mill Depot Room in the Phillips Center, 23736 Park Center Drive, Live Oak, FL 32060.

FDOT staff and personnel will answer questions and handouts will be available.
