Klausner Lumber One LLC could soon begin construction on a sawmill that will be located at the catalyst site in Northwestern Suwannee County. Meanwhile, improvements continue on county owned land at the catalyst site.

The catalyst site is located Northwest of the I-10 and US 90 interchange. CenterState Bank in Jacksonville owns approximately 236 acres at the site, the county owns approximately 287 acres (25 acres not on catalyst site), and 120 acres was deeded to Klausner Lumber One LLC.

According to County Administrator Randy Harris, the general contractor for Klausner is on site and ready to begin construction immediately. To date, the company has installed underground utilities and is ready to begin vertical construction. Harris said he anticipates construction to begin on the site within the next 30 days.

169th Road, a road that leads to the catalyst site from US 90, is currently under reconstruction, along with the access road that connects 169th Road to the Klausner site. Harris said the road is being reconstructed to handle the anticipated truck load. This project is being funded by the Florida Department of Transportation.
