Two week closure planned for West Street in Bushnell
Sumter County – The north side of West Street (County Road 311) will be closed for two weeks starting at 7 a.m. Monday, June 12, as part of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Road (S.R.) 48 widening project from east of the I-75 ramps to Main Street.
West Street will be closed from the S.R. 48 intersection to West Palm Avenue. In addition, a small section of West Parker Avenue from West Street to the end of the new storm water pond will be closed.
A detour will be in effect, and the route will be as follows:
- Eastbound and westbound S.R. 48 traffic will be directed to travel north on North York Street and take West Palm Avenue to West Street.
- Southbound West Street traffic will be directed to travel east on West Palm Avenue and take North York Street to S.R. 48.
The closure is necessary so the contractor, D.A.B. Constructors, Inc., can reconstruct the roadway at S.R. 48 and West Street.
Access to any residences and/or businesses along West Street will be maintained. Please note that this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
Current project information will be posted to the Central Florida FDOT website at www.cflroads.com.
To ensure your safety and the safety of others, please exercise extra caution when driving through construction work zones.
