Traffic Shuffled Again In $4.7 Million Highway 29 Project In Century

September 16, 2023

There has been another big shift in a Highway 29 construction zone in Century.

North and southbound traffic on North Century Boulevard has been shifted to one outside travel lane in each direction between Rudolph Street and Green Street

The shift will be in place through September as crews perform drainage improvements, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

The complete $4.7 million project has an anticipated completion target date in January 2024.  FDOT will also upgrade traffic signals, drainage structures, pavement markings, and driveways, while also improving curb ramps and sidewalks to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

    Shouldn’t this be a short-suspense project since it impacts a hurricane evacuation route in the middle of hurricane season?

    The workers have the driving way closed coming from zion st you have to go right go all the way up to family dollar store make a upturn just to go to century cvs they need to more at least three two barrows so we can get out to go toward centry. Getting back home from Flomaton. We have to uturn in from of vallartas. Resaturant. It’s dangerous both ways

    You mean September of 2024 if we are lucky or maybe 25. They haven’t done any real work on this in two months again. It’s work two weeks then take four months off. I called FDOT about this job over a month ago and they gave me two reasons why they weren’t working on it. The company can’t find enough people that want to work, and they had to pull off this job to do one in Pensacola. Here we are in the middle of hurricane season and a major evacuation route is down to one narrow lane. If they have to evacuate Pensacola traffic will be backed up to Cantonment.
