Lighting Enhanced at Multiple Interchanges in Ocala Area
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is wrapping up construction that installed four, 80-foot-tall and 32, 120-foot-tall high mast light poles, as well as 49, 40-foot-tall conventional light poles. The high mast lighting was installed at the on-and-off ramps at the interchanges while the conventional light poles were installed along the county and state roads within short distances of each interchange.
The nearly $3.1 million project began in the fall of 2017 and is completing about two months ahead of schedule.
The project is part of a comprehensive effort in the East Central Florida region to install and improve both conventional and high mast lighting at interchanges along I-4, I-75 and I-95.
