Not trying to be too much of a cynic, unless the asphalt the state is requiring on 415 is different than 421 (Dunlawton) and indeed they cannot pave, this is saying that the state is allowing our road to unnecessarily be delayed in order to give priority to the already behind 415 project.
My speculation would be that Port Orange is again getting the short end of the stick. The contractor should be held accountable and not over reach their capacity. FDOT is responsible and we deserve a better explanation and better future performance as they start the Ridegwood project.
While we are on the subject have you seen the mess they have made of Victoria Gardens Blvd. at Clyde Morris where they were staging their equipment? The pavement is messed up with drips and the striping darkened, not to mention the road side where they still have roller brushes and ruts.

If I understood Mr. Grube correctly, P&S has been giving 415 priority over Dunlawton because they are behind schedule on 415.

I found it strange today that P&S was paving state road 415 near and in Osteen. Just sayin’ after the excuse for taking months to replace the control box at Yorktown and adjusting the light timing….

As per our telephone conversation attached is the DC Memo I was talking about. As you can see per the Memo, the Department is not allowing the contractor to change mix designs but will grant the contractor additional time. Also per our conversation I will keep you informed if the contractor will resume paving this Sunday night.

Subject: RE: CFLRoads: Question About Project 427279-1
Good Afternoon, Ms. Rivera –
The Project Administrator for this project is out of the office until Wednesday. However, I was able to discuss your concerns with his supervisors. They drove the project this afternoon as well to address the signal concerns.
There are currently some asphalt and material shortages which has delayed the project. FDOT and the contractor (P&S Paving) are working diligently with the industry, however, it is currently out of their control. We are hopeful that this issue will be resolved quickly, and the contractor will be able to return to work within the next couple weeks. Once they return and resume paving operations, it should take approximately one month to complete the paving. At that point, it will be approximately another 5-6 weeks to finish work such as the rest of the loops, punch-out, and clean-up. We are looking at an estimated completion date of mid-June/1st of July.
In regards to the signals, they report that the signals are operating as they should. The temporary detectors and interconnects are working as well.
If you receive further complaints, feel free to forward them to me. If you would like updated status in a couple weeks, please let me know.
I hope that helps—again, we apologize for the inconvenience.
