The Florida Department of Transportation plans to begin construction to extend the existing exit lane on Interstate 10 eastbound at US 231 in Jackson County. Improvements along the 0.24-mile project include:
-Extending and widening the existing eastbound exit lane to increase vehicle capacity
-Improving drainage and safety
Lane closures may occur from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.
The speed limit within the construction zone is reduced from 70 mph to 60 mph during lane closures.
Work is scheduled to be completed spring 2023. Construction activities are weather dependent and may be delayed or rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to use caution, especially at night, when traveling through a work zone and to watch for construction workers and equipment entering and exiting the roadway. Speeding fines are doubled when workers are present.
