Officials with the state Department of Transportation's District 2 office in Lake City came to the Levy County Commission meeting on Tuesday and while it was not like Christmas Day, their assurances on a proposed five-year plan for road construction in Levy were warmly greeted. 

Greg Evans, secretary for District 2, said his office covers all the state roads and bridges in 18 counties and their 2 million residents. He said the district employs 750 people who maintain 7,200 lane miles and 1,206 bridges.

Right now, he said, the district has over 80 construction projects under way valued at $900 million. 

But he was at the commission meeting on Tuesday with a person more familiar to the commision — Jordan Green, District 2 project engineer. 

Green said the visit is part of an annual presentation of the proposed five-year project plan for the county that includes bridges and sidewalks for Cedar Key, the bike and pedestrian path in Yankeetown,  landscaping and improved railroad crossing for Williston, resurfacing from Otter Creek to Bronson and a traffic signal update at Walmart in Chiefland.
