This spring, Ranger Construction’s North Division, based in Winter Garden, FL, began work on two FDOT contracts to convert sections of US-27 into urban highway.
The work, totaling over $47 million, involves widening the road from four to six lanes, adding curb and gutter, and replacing two bridges.
The reconstruction will allow Clermont and Four Corners to better handle the growth that has resulted from the nearby Disney parks.
Other new FDOT contracts in the region include a mill-and-resurface project for 5.8 miles of SR-50 (Colonial Drive) in Orange County. The $5 million project will require nearly 35,000 tons of asphalt, resulting in a much improved surface for drivers.
Ranger also recently received a $2.8 million, 90-day contract to mill and resurface 2.52 miles of SR-419 (Chuluota Road) in Seminole County.
