Traffic Shift Planned For Highway 29 In Century

July 9, 2024

Highway 29 traffic in Century will be shifted to newly constructed southbound travel lanes beginning Monday, July 15.

One travel lane in each direction will be open as crews reconstruct the adjacent northbound lanes between Rudolph Street and Green Street. One travel lane in each direction will be open as crews reconstruct the adjacent northbound lanes.

The traffic shift is expected to remain in place throughout the summer.

    No worries
    They’re not close to shifting lanes by the 15th.

    @Teddy
    It’s sad that anyone wouldn’t know this is not a Town of Century project. (FDOT)
    Also if it were in Pensacola they would be rebuilding all of the sidewalks plus resurfacing all the way down to Teddar Rd like is needed.

    I’m thinking that it took years to get this done so at least 6 more years of lane changes.

    The city of Century are absolutely useless – I’m disabled & I was nearly killed here the other week – Lopez needs to be sent back to the hood he cane from.

    Nobody has worked on it for a few weeks. Like in the spring it sat for months idle.
    That very first delay because a water main was “off the books” caused this project to be shuffled into the “when we get to it (between other jobs they already have scheduled)”

    Most contracts have an unforeseen contingency clause. Circumstances beyond the contractors control. Blame the water main. or somebodys water main.
