Lighting Enhanced at Multiple Interchanges in Ocala Area


 Marion County Motorists may notice increased light at the County Road (C.R.) 484, State Road (S.R.) 326 and C.R. 318 interchanges with Interstate 75 (I-75) this week.

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.

Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT Communications Office at 386-943-5479 or d5-pio@dot.state.fl.us.

FDOT reminds motorists to slow down and alertly drive through construction areas.
