LIVE OAK, FL – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is set to begin a resurfacing project on U.S. 90 in Live Oak later this month, weather and time permitting.

The $9.1 million, 15-mile project, which will take place from County Road 49 on the eastern side of Live Oak to the Suwannee River and Hamilton County line, is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 28.

Work will include milling, resurfacing, and widening of the roadway, as well as other incidental construction. Additionally, signal improvements will take place at four intersections along U.S. 90 – Walker Avenue, Houston Avenue, Lee Avenue, and County Road 49.

FDOT has contracted with Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., of Lake City, to complete the work.

Motorists should expect both daytime and nighttime work, though lane closures are prohibited at certain times of the day depending on the work schedule and location. No lane closures are allowed from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday throughout the length of the project.

Additionally, to better accommodate traffic through downtown Live Oak, no lane closures will be allowed from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday from 129th Road to just east of County Road 49.

Work is expected to be completed in Spring 2020
