CRESTVIEW, Fla. – Work is scheduled to begin in June on a new $3.2 million project to resurface a 2.2-mile segment of State Road 85 (North Ferdon Boulevard) from U.S. 90 to north of Commerce Drive in Crestview, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has announced.
The project is estimated for completion in early 2023.
According to the FDOT, additional improvements and enhancements will also be made during this project:
- Sidewalk improvements
- Signalization enhancements
- Drainage upgrades
- New signage and pavement markings
During construction, drivers may encounter temporary traffic shifts as well as intermittent and alternating lane closures between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights.
No lane closures will be scheduled during special events at Crestview High School, Richbourg School, or Northwood Elementary School.
Pedestrians may be temporarily detoured while sidewalk work and repairs are performed.
All activities are weather-dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to use caution, especially at night, when traveling through a work zone and to watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the roadway.
