Scheduled to begin on June 2, the $5.1 million resurfacing project will take place between the Columbia County line and Northwest 167th Boulevard in Alachua. In addition to milling and paving, work will include drainage improvements, shoulder work, replacement of traffic signal detectors, sidewalk work, and other incidental construction.

The state's Department of Transportation will begin a 7-mile resurfacing project on U.S. 441 in Alachua County next month.

Scheduled to begin on June 2, the $5.1 million resurfacing project will take place — weather permitting — between the Columbia County line and Northwest 167th Boulevard in Alachua.

In addition to milling and paving, work will include drainage improvements, shoulder work, replacement of traffic signal detectors, sidewalk work, and other incidental construction, an FDOT news release about the project said.

Most of the road work will be completed during the day, and motorists should expect delays. Some lane-closure restrictions are in place during peak travel times to avoid tying up traffic.

Those restrictions include:

•No lane closures allowed from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. southbound and 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday northbound.

•No lane closures allowed on school days within 1,000 feet of Santa Fe High School, one hour before school begins to 30 minutes after school ends.

•No lane closures allowed within the High Springs city limits from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Special restrictions will also prohibit work during special events in the area. Weekly lane closure information on this project can be found at www.nflroads.com.

The project is scheduled to be finished by spring 2019.
