Press release from Alachua County
ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – The Alachua County Public Works Department announces that NE 27th Avenue in the Copeland area is the first resurfacing project to use funds from the new Infrastructure Surtax approved by voters last November. The tax will generate approximately $11.7 million annually for road rehabilitation projects. Combined with other funding sources, these dollars are part of the quarter-of-a-billion-dollar, 10-year pavement management program recently approved by the County Commission.
Paving of the travel lanes began on Monday, June 26, 2023, and should be completed by the end of this week. Over the next few weeks, the contractors will pave all connection approaches and install an elevated speed table for a crosswalk at Copeland Park. Travel delays will continue through July while this work is completed. Drivers should expect delays while traveling on this road.
The NE 27th Avenue project is budgeted at $1,559,043 and includes the milling and resurfacing of 1½ inches of asphalt for .86 miles. Local paving contractor V.E. Whitehurst & Sons, Inc. is doing the paving and coordinating the project with Superior Roadway Services for milling and P&P Striping, LLC for roadway striping.
