The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) contractor, Prince Contracting, LLC, will begin construction in early September to reconstruct the interchange at US 27 and SR 60 in Polk County. US 27 and SR 60 will be widened from four to six lanes. Additional improvements include bicycle lanes, curb and gutter, signals, lighting, signage, pavement markings, a closed drainage system and sidewalks. In addition, a new bridge will be constructed over US 27 and an urban frontage road will be constructed in the southwest quadrant of the project for access to local businesses. A noise wall along SR 60 from South Miami Street to west of Sharp Street will be installed. Work will occur during the day and during nighttime/overnight hours with lane closures, full road closures and detours on US 27 and SR 60 during construction. Access to and from all bus stop boarding and landing areas will be maintained during construction. The project limits are from Lake Altamaha to the CSX Railroad crossing on US 27 and Central Avenue to Martin Luther King Boulevard on SR 60 and approximately 800 feet west of US 27 to Miami Street on Central Avenue. The project limits are identified on the project location map.
