2nd Avenue Road Repair Update
Most drivers who take Southwest 2nd Avenue near the University of Florida's campus described a series of two bumps in the road as a roller-coaster ride.
The problem began earlier this year when the clay soil beneath the roadway started to give way and could no longer support the asphalt.
Florida Department of Transportation crews worked on the scene and put in a series of concrete columns to prevent any future damage, but then the project stalled.
FDOT spokesperson Gina Busscher says they couldn't complete the project until now because they needed to hire an asphalt contractor.
The department says they have to group repaving projects together to make the repairs financial feasible.
FDOT will take bids from contractors for the next 4-6 weeks.
From there the winning crew will repave the roadway which should fix the roller-coaster sensation drivers are feeling.
