Nassau County Road Department
Nassau County Annual Road Overlay Program
Nassau County, Florida, July 10, 2019 - The Nassau County Road Department will begin the Annual Road Overlay Program on or around July 22, 2019.
All roads in the overlay program will consist of “clipping” grass and soil off of the road
edges, milling sections of the roadway (which may create dust), “tacking” the roadway
before paving, overlaying the roadway with a new layer of asphalt, temporary and
permanent traffic striping, and road shoulder repairs from the new construction.
The County’s Capital Improvement Plan adopted on September 18, 2018 included $2.5 million in Fiscal Year 18-19 funding for Pavement Management Programs to include Overlay Projects. The following roads were prioritized at a Workshop held on April 22, 2019 based on the following criteria:
- Traffic Volume
- Through traffic
- Citizens served
- Existing Road Conditions
- Quantity of potholes
- Condition of service (cracking, etc.)
Road Overlays are typically a fast- moving operation. During construction, there will be periods of high noise levels.

What You Can Expect
DRIVERS: During Construction, roads will occasionally be reduced to one lane of traffic. Expect some delays, crews will make every effort possible to limit the travel delays.
PEDESTRIANS: Pedestrian or bicycle traffic are not permitted within the construction zones due to safety concerns. Crews will ensure there is a safe path of travel for children at bus stops.
RESIDENTS: There may be short periods of time that you may not be able to enter/exit your driveway due to the construction. Crews will keep this minimal as possible and will be on site to advise when it is safe to travel through the construction area.
What you can do to help
DRIVE SLOWLY through the construction area as there are many workers present
AVOID parking or leaving items in the street if possible until after the project is completed
AVOID making excessively sharp turns and harsh acceleration/stopping
DO NOT DRIVE ON FRESHLY PLACED ASPHALT or STRIPING. Crews on site will advise when products have cured enough for travel.
Any questions or concerns, please call the Road Department office at (904) 530-6175 or email email@example.com.
We realize this project can create some inconveniences for our citizens. Nassau County thanks you for your cooperation and patience during this work.
