Highway 4 Road Work Begins; Drivers Can Expect Delays

March 15, 2017

Construction work is now underway on a $1.13 million project on State Road 4 in Century.

Crews are milling and resurfacing the 1.4 miles of travel lanes from Highway  29 to the Escambia River Bridge, constructing minor shoulder widening, placing new signs and pavement markings along the project, and reconstructing the CSX railroad crossing in Century.

A temporary onsite diversion (pictured left) has been constructed to route traffic around the railroad reconstruction work.  Law enforcement will be on site to assist with traffic control once the railroad crossing traffic is shifted.

Tuesday morning, drivers were reporting wait time of up to 12 minutes for a pilot vehicle to lead them through the construction zone.

Construction is anticipated to be complete spring 2017, weather permitting.  This is a Florida Department of Transportation project, and is not funded or managed by the Town of Century.
