Motorists should be aware of lane closures this week after 8:30 a.m. on State Road 53 at the CSX railroad overpass outside of Madison while preparations are made to clean and repaint the steel structure of the overpass.
These lane closures are part of an overall project to repair and repaint five bridges in Madison County including the State Road 53 railroad overpass and the eastbound and westbound Suwannee River and Suwannee River relief bridges on Interstate 10 at the Suwannee County line.
Crews have replaced the bridge joints on the State Road 53 overpass and are currently cleaning and painting the Interstate 10 bridges.
MJM Construction, LLC of Tarpon Springs was hired by FDOT to complete the work on all five bridges for $645,000.88. The project is tentatively scheduled for completion in late 2013.
