Daytona Beach – The pace is picking up as major work on a bridge over US 92, just west of Daytona Beach, begins early next week. It is part of the Interstate 4 project in Volusia County. The work will involve three large cranes and pile driving.
The work is occurring in the daytime from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work could extend into the weekend if necessary. Pile driving operations are expected to last four-to-six weeks. Crews are on an aggressive schedule to get a new bridge done and opened in time for next February’s Daytona 500, when race week traffic in the area is extremely heavy.
The I-4 construction project in Volusia County began May 2012. It lasts 900 days and costs more than $134 million. In addition to widening the interstate from four-to-six lanes, it calls for major work to exit and on-ramp, to and from US 92.
The Florida Department of Transportation urges motorists to drive safely in the Volusia County I-4 construction zone and obey the speed limit—which is 60 miles-per-hour on mainline I-4.
Buckle up. Pay attention, and don’t text and drive.
