Nearly $2 million resurfacing work to begin on Morse and Buena Vista boulevards

A resurfacing project for Buena Vista Boulevard is scheduled to begin on Sunday, July 21. A resurfacing project for Morse Boulevard is scheduled to begin on Sunday, Aug. 4. The work is expected to be completed overnight with intermittent lane closures. Each project will take approximately 90 days.

The Buena Vista Boulevard resurfacing will be done on 1.25 miles of the road from 300 feet south of Lake Miona Drive to County Road 466A, including roundabouts.

The Morse Boulevard project will cover a distance of about 0.8 miles from County Road 466 to about 1,000 feet south of Stillwater Trail, including roundabouts and the Morse Boulevard Bridge.

Sumter County commissioners this past April approved contracts with D.A.B. Constructors, the lowest bidder on both projects, to complete the work. Three companies bid on the Buena Vista project and four on the Morse project.

D.A.B.’s bids were $1.05 million for Buena Vista Boulevard and $848,889 for Morse Boulevard.

Both projects, which involve milling, paving, base reconditioning and pavement markings, are expected to take 105 days.
