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.

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