Tuesday, March 17th to January 17th
Contractor is scheduled to shift traffic on eastbound SR 50 in sections from the SR 408 overpass to Avalon Park Blvd starting the night of Tuesday, March 17, 2015. This will involve closing the eastbound SR 408 merge lane onto eastbound SR 50. The eastbound SR 408 off-ramp will go to SR 50 with the left lane turning left onto westbound SR 50 at the traffic light and the middle and right lanes turning right onto SR 50 at the traffic light.
Traffic exiting SR 408 will no longer have an extra merge lane. This condition will remain until three new eastbound lanes are built and opened to traffic in six to eight months.
Time frames could change based on weather conditions and other variables. Updates will be provided should the schedule change.
This project consists of the widening and reconstruction of the SR 50 (Colonial Drive) roadway from four to six lanes, the addition of bike lanes, intersection improvements, sidewalks, drainage ponds, and bridge culvert replacements.
