Press release from Florida Department of Transportation
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The ramp from I-75 South to Newberry Road (State Road 26) will close overnight next week as crews prepare the installation of a high-friction pavement surface to improve safety and reduce crashes.
Beginning Sunday, July 9, through Thursday, July 13, the ramp will close nightly at 9 p.m. and reopen by 5:30 a.m. the following morning. Drivers will be detoured via SW Archer Road to I-75 North to access Newberry Road.
The ramp will be milled and resurfaced, followed by a high-friction application. The application consists of a thin layer of high-quality, polish-resistant aggregate bonded to the pavement surface with a polymer resin binder. In Florida, the application has reduced the rate of total crashes on ramps by 32 percent and decreased wet weather crashes by 75 percent.
