Highway 29 Resurfacing Project Begins Today From Cantonment To Molino

June 12, 2019

Work is scheduled to begin today to resurface Highway 29 from just south of Muscogee Road in Cantonment to Highway 97 in Molino.

Improvements in the almost $8.8 million transportation project will include:

  • A new traffic signal will be added at Highway 29 and Molino Road, along with a new northbound and southbound turn lanes on Highway 29 and turn lanes in both directions on Molino Road. The median crossover at the Dollar General Store will be closed.
  • At Barrineau Park Road, new northbound and southbound turn lanes will be added on Highway 29.
  • New Highway 29 northbound and southbound turn lanes will be added into the Florida Division of Forestry (fire tower)
  • A new southbound right turn lane will be added at Booth Lake Road.
  • At Quintette Road, new turn lanes will be added on Highway 29 in both directions. There will not be a traffic signal installed.
  • At the Highway 29 and Muscogee/Becks Lake Road, the turning radius will be improved on all four corners and the signal will be reconstructed.
  • The railroad crossing signals on Highway 29 just south of Muscogee Road will be replaced.
  • Miscellaneous modifications, pedestrian feature upgrades, guardrails, new signage and pavement markings.

Motorists will encounter intermittent lane restrictions during construction.  The project is anticipated to be complete summer 2020.

    Why take away the Dollar General crossover? If they do that then the only way to access it is to go up 4 buildings and turn around, or take up the thrift store parking lot. Or maybe another good idea would be to connect those two parking lots. Whatever it is, closing that crossover is the dumbest idea!
