Resurfacing Project in the Works for Southwest 62nd Boulevard in Gainesville

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Drivers and residents spoke to us today about their concerns with SW 62nd Boulevard in Gainesville. The thoroughfare, which connects Newberry Rd. to SW 20th Ave., is filled with potholes. Travelers on the road say 62nd Blvd. is not pedestrian friendly, despite being a bus route.

Starting in 2019, the road will undergo a total resurfacing. Depending on the money available, Gainesville spokesperson Chip Skinner says they will review the design for more pedestrian options.
