As work progresses, you are beginning to see eastbound lanes shifted to a new pattern at Dean Road and eventually to Lake Berge. This will allow the first part of the new eastbound roadway to be constructed, and also half of the big storm water culverts that cross Colonial to be rebuilt.
You can also see the new eastbound pavement area starting to take shape going east from Dean Road. Pedestrians are currently being directed to the north side of SR 50 (Colonial Drive), and will be until the new curb and sidewalk are completed on the south side.
This work is estimated to be completed by February 2016.
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.
