Overhead Sign Installation on US 441 in Ocala


Marion County  – Motorists in downtown Ocala should be on the lookout for temporary night time lane closures as the Florida Department of Transportation and contractor, Infrastructure Corporation of America, remove and replace overhead ‘green’ signs at several locations along US 441 (Pine Avenue) and State Road (SR) 40 / Silver Springs Boulevard.


Beginning Sunday December 8th and continuing each night until the job is completed, multiple lanes in each direction on US 441 and SR 40 – at the Pine Avenue & Silver Springs Boulevard intersection and on south US 441 just north of US 27 – will be temporarily closed. Contractor personnel will be removing overhead signs with failing reflectivity and replacing them with new ones. Work is to begin each night after 9 p.m. with the road fully reopened by 7 a.m. The job is expected to complete within 5 to 7 days. No work is scheduled for Friday December 13th or Saturday December 14th.


Weather conditions and other unforeseen circumstances could alter work schedules.
