WESLEY CHAPEL — State transportation officials set this week as the deadline for receiving new bids from road builders hoping to complete the diverging diamond interchange at Interstate 75 and State Road 56 in Pasco County.

The project is one of seven major road improvement jobs stretching from Hillsborough to Citrus County abandoned by D.A.B. Constructors last month. The company, with three decades of construction history in central Florida, announced in July that it was shuttering its business.

The road work, which amounts to tens of millions of dollars in unfinished construction, will now be completed through the various surety bonding companies on each job. State officials are dealing with each individual contract separately, while also addressing specific issues on job sites left behind when D.A.B. closed its doors.
