New Section of SR-79 Opens Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

A new section of State Road 79 in Washington County is set to open this week and motorists should be prepared for some changes.

Florida Department of Transportation crews will transition to the new construction, between Strickland Road and Henry Lane near Ebro, at noon Tuesday.

Along with the new roadway comes a reduction in the speed limit to 45 miles per hour.  The FDOT said flaggers will be on site to assist with traffic control and motorists are urged to use caution.
