Improvements to U.S. 90 Begin in August
 
Improvements on U.S. 90 in Madison County begin in August

MadisonA 15-mile long stretch of U.S. 90 is scheduled to be resurfaced between Madison and the Suwannee County line beginning in August, weather permitting.  
 
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project includes resurfacing the roadway and various side streets from the end of the four-lane in Madison to the Suwannee River bridge. FDOT hired The Scruggs Company of Hahira, Georgia to do the work at a cost of $5 million. The work should be completed by early 2016.
 
Other improvements include adding painted rumble strips to road edges for enhanced safety, widening the turn off onto Donaldson Road and replacing guardrail at various locations. Also, handicap-accessible ramps on sidewalks at intersections will be upgraded to include detectable warning devices and flashing school zone signs will be replaced in Lee.
 
Resurfacing will begin at State Road 6 heading eastbound to the Suwannee County line. Paving is done in two layers with the last layer coming toward the end of the project so motorists will encounter uneven pavement until the final layer of asphalt is placed.
 
Lane closures are scheduled weekdays after 8:30 a.m. and could extend up to two miles. Drivers are reminded that speeding fines are doubled when workers are present in the work zone. Traffic entering U.S. 90 during lane closures when flaggers are not present should only enter the roadway when traffic is headed in the same direction they wish to travel.
 
The traffic ranges from an average of 2,600 vehicles a day at the Suwannee County line to 5,400 per day at the four-lane. This section of U.S. 90 was last resurfaced in 1999.
