Construction begins July 6 on Governors Creek bridge sidewalk project


FLEMING ISLAND – A project to add sidewalks and make other improvements to U.S. 17 on the Governors Creek Bridge is expected to begin construction Monday, July 6.

Gosalia Concrete Constructors was selected to complete the $954,000 project, which includes sidewalk installation, milling and resurfacing, shoulder treatment, drainage improvements, curb and gutters, highway signage and other incidental construction on U.S. Highway 17/State Road 15 at Governors Creek Bridge on Fleming Island.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2021, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.

Traffic will be maintained in accordance with FDOT design standards throughout the project. The posted speed limit of 35 mph will be reduced to 30 mph in the project area throughout the duration of construction. Project work is expected to take place during both daytime and overnight hours, Monday through Friday, with periodic lane closures. No lane closures on U.S. 17 will be permitted between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., seven days a week.

The Florida Department of Transportation urges motorists to always follow the speed limit and stay within the limits of orange cones and barrels while traveling through construction zones.
