MOORE HAVEN — Local motorists and through travelers were being urged to exercise extra caution in the area of the U.S. 27 intersection with Florida State Road 78, just west of town, as of Wednesday, Sept. 11. Ajax Paving began tearing up old pavement (above) in preparation for the repaving of the highway, and traffic is restricted to one lane in each direction, with lower speed limits in this active construction zone.
