HAWTHORNE ‒ As part of the of widening improvements on State Road 20 from the Putnam County line to Southwest 56th Avenue, County Road 20A will be temporarily closed at State Road 20 Monday, Aug. 17 through Monday, Aug. 24, weather and schedule permitting.

The temporary closure is necessary to safely complete roadway reconstruction work. Traffic will detour via County Road 21 south to County Road 20A.

The improvement project includes widening State Road 20 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane urban roadway with curbs, gutters, grassed medians, bicycle lanes, five-foot sidewalk on the north side, a 10-foot multi-use path on the south side of the roadway and five-span bridge at Fowlers Prairie. This segment will complete a 12-mile span of improvements on State Road 20 from Alachua County to Putnam County.

Lane closures are allowed Monday through Friday after 8:30 a.m. Intermittent detours and periodic traffic shifts will be necessary to complete reconstruction work at access points to State Road 20.

Anderson Columbia Co. Inc is estimated to complete the $49 million widening improvements by late 2022. Construction completion estimates are fluid and subject to change, weather and schedule permitting.
