Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart reports that the Florida Department of Transportation has contracted with a private company to conduct a series of asphalt surveys on SR 53 North. The project will start at the intersections of US 90 and SR 53 North and end at the Florida/Georgia state line on SR 53. Weather permitting, the project will occur on Wednesday, Nov. 4 starting at 7 a.m. and finishing at 6 p.m. the same day.
At each survey site there will be brief travel delays, as traffic will be diverted into single lanes of travel as the project progresses north on SR 53. The company has contracted with the Sheriff’s Office for law enforcement presence and assistance for the duration of the project. Sheriff Stewart asks that motorist exercise caution while traveling through the different survey sites.
