Live Oak — Part of Warren Street in Live Oak that was damaged by a sinkhole from Tropical Storm Debby in June 2012 is back open to traffic. The portion of the street near the Suwannee County Courthouse was paved and striped Monday night.
Curt's Construction was awarded a bid on May 25, and approved by the Live Oak City Council in August to perform the task of remediating parts of the sinkhole and rebuilding the road. The project began in early September.
Proposals by the Live Oak CRA now include making Warren Street a one way road (West to East) to facilitate angled parking; closing one block of Pine Avenue adjacent to Veterans Park, and creating green space where the condemned buildings once stood along US 90.
