Freeport– North and southbound traffic on U.S. 331 will be transitioned to the newly constructed northbound roadway between Owls Head and Edgewood Circle in Walton County Sunday, Oct. 30 as crews begin reconstruction work on the existing lanes.
Traffic at Wagon Wheel and Rock Hill Roads will also return to the normal traffic pattern. A temporary traffic pattern has been in place since Sept. 19 while crews worked to reduce the elevation of the intersections with U.S. 331.
This work is part of the $48 million U.S. 331 construction project that includes expanding the existing road to four lanes, adding drainage and safety improvements and placing new roadway signs and pavement markings. The estimated completion date is summer 2017.
All planned construction activities are weather dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather. Drivers are reminded to pay attention to the speed limit when traveling through the construction area and to use caution, especially at night, when driving in work zones.
