Hendry County Roadwatch advisory for SR 80 from Dalton Lane to CR 833


SR 80 from Dalton Lane to CR 833: Construction project: Crews will widen approximately 11 miles of roadway from two to four lanes and add new turning lanes. Additional work includes repaving the current lanes of SR 80 and constructing ten new bridges. Three of the bridges will require full demolition and removal of the existing bridges in order to construct the new ones.

  • Motorists should expect eastbound and westbound single lane closures at 9 a.m. and again at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 9 with flagging operations on SR 80 approximately three miles west of CR 833 as Glades Electric crews work on utilities in that area. Each lane closure should only last approximately five minutes and will only take place at 9 a.m. and noon on Tuesday, Jan. 9. These lane closures will be only on Jan. 9; after Tuesday, all lanes will be open. Motorists should follow the new traffic pattern to travel through the work zone during these times.

Work also includes drainage improvements, adding curb and gutter, and installing LED lighting. Estimated project completion is summer 2020. The contractor is AJAX Paving Industries of Florida.
