The Florida Department of Transportation is proposing safety improvements along S.R. 44 (U.S. 441) at the intersections of Fern Drive in Leesburg and Waterman Way/Nightingale Lane in Tavares, Lake County. 

The project addresses operational and safety concerns in the areas by converting the full median openings to directional median openings. These modifications reduce traffic conflict points at the intersections to improve safety.

Construction at the intersection of Fern Drive and U.S. 441 started Monday, April 2, 2018 and should be complete by mid-June of 2018.

A public hearing to present more information about these improvements was held Thursday, June 29, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites 3601 Burleigh Boulevard, Tavares, FL 32778. 

Note: The Waterman Way median modification was completed on 2/8/2018.  The Fern Drive median modification is expected to be completed by the end of June of 2018.
