 Turn Lane Closed at North Causeway in New Smyrna Beach


New Smyrna Beach – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will temporarily close the right turn lane from Riverside Drive to the North Causeway (State Road 44) to better accommodate larger vehicles turning onto the North Causeway from northbound Riverside Drive during bridge deck repairs.


Traffic is currently shifted at the west end of the North Causeway as the FDOT contractor removes and replaces the concrete bridge deck on the two small bridges over the Berrys and Conners canals. One lane of travel in each direction is maintained on the North Causeway.


With the turn lane closure on Riverside Drive, all traffic will use the inside northbound lane to continue north on Riverside Drive, turn right onto the North Causeway, or turn left onto Washington Street. The closure will give vehicles hauling trailers a wider turn radius to access the North Causeway.


Drivers are also reminded that the speed limit has been lowered in the construction zone because of the traffic shifts. Please slow down and use caution through the project area.


The turn lane is expected to remain closed throughout construction, which is expected to finish in summer 2018.


Please note that construction schedules can change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Updates will be posted on the FDOT’s Central Florida website www.cflroads.com.
