State Road 200 Work Ramps Up


OcalaMotorists traveling State Road (S.R.) 200 (Southwest College Road) will see an upsurge in construction activities late this weekend, and throughout next week, as improvements begin in three different areas from County Road 484 to the Interstate 75 (I-75) interchange.


Area One: Travelers are advised that the westbound outside (right) lane is anticipated to be closed nightly from Sunday, Oct. 21 – Thursday, Oct. 25, 7:30 p.m. – 7:30 a.m., between SW 36th Avenue and the I-75 interchange for work along the northbound I-75 on ramp. Access to northbound I-75 from westbound S.R. 200 will be accommodated by turning right from the middle lane. Traffic will also be shifted to temporary pavement on the ramp. This work is part of improvements to add turn lanes and widen some of the I-75 on-and-off ramps.


Area Two: Drivers are also advised that short, intermittent daytime lane closures are anticipated Monday, Oct. 22 – Friday, Oct. 26, along eastbound S.R. 200 at 50th, 46th and 43rd courts as well as in the westbound direction at SW 42nd Street for pedestrian improvements to concrete sidewalk and curb ramps. This work is part of improvements to resurface the road from east of Southwest 60th Avenue to east of Southwest 38th Court, about 3 miles.


Area Three: Additionally, resurfacing work is anticipated to begin at the end of this month between County Road 484 and east of 60th Avenue, about 6 miles. No lane closures are anticipated at this time; however, work will require nighttime lane closures.


Drivers are also being given notice that they can expect uneven lanes, when the contractor places layers of new asphalt.


Please note that lane closures may change. Electronic message boards and other signage will be used to safely direct motorists as well as pedestrians and bicyclists around work. When work occurs at signalized intersections, law enforcement will direct traffic.


Lane closure information is available on FDOT’s Central Florida website, www.CFLRoads.com. Search by project numbers 435659-2, 437344-1 and 436978-1.


Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT Communications Office at 386-943-5497 or d5-pio@dot.state.fl.us.


Please pay attention and use caution when traveling through a construction zone.
