State Road 20 Widening – Alachua County Line to SW 56th Avenue

Overview

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin a roadway improvement project on State Road 20 from the Alachua County line to SW 56th Avenue in January 2020. This portion of State Road 20 is the second of three segments to widen State Road 20 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane urban roadway. To safely complete work, lane closures will be allowed Monday through Friday after 8:30 a.m. Intermittent detours may be necessary to install storm drain structures and complete other construction work. Additional improvements in the project will also include:

  • Two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction
  • 4-foot inside shoulders
  • 6.5-foot outside shoulder/bicycle lanes east and west
  • Grassed medians
  • Periodic traffic/lane shifts will be necessary to allow the contractor to safely complete work
  • 5-foot sidewalk on the north side of the roadway
  • New 10-foot multi-use pathway
  • Curb and gutter work
