Marion County, Fla. – The State Road (S.R.) 200 (Southwest College Road) northbound on ramp (Exit 350) to Interstate 75 (I-75) will be closed from 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 14 to 7:30 a.m. Monday, July 15. The closure is needed to build a foundation for a new traffic light as part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to widen and add turn lanes along S.R. 200 at the I-75 interchange area from just east of Southwest 38th Court to west of Southwest 36th Avenue.
During the work, eastbound S.R. 200 traffic will be diverted onto Southwest 27th Avenue and directed to travel west on West Silver Springs Boulevard (S.R. 40) to merge onto the northbound I-75 on ramp. Westbound traffic will be routed north on Southwest 60th Avenue to eastbound West Silver Springs Boulevard to access the I-75 northbound on ramp.
Please note that construction schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances. Electronic message boards will be used to alert drivers to the closure.
FDOT urges all drivers to stay alert and use caution while driving through or near construction zones. When driving, walking, or bicycling, remember to pay attention and follow the rules. Safety doesn’t happen by accident.
