This is a project to widen U.S. 441/U.S. 27/State Road (S.R.) 500 from four to six lanes between Lake Ella Road and Avenida Central. Both northbound and southbound U.S. 441 will be expanded from two to three lanes, and bicycle lanes and sidewalks will be added along the length of the project. The FDOT will also do drainage work, add signage, make lighting upgrades, make median access changes and improve the aesthetics of the roadway with new landscaping.
A key aspect of the project will be the removal of U.S. 441 bridges over County Road (C.R.) 25, and the creation of a new, at-grade intersection at that location. C.R. 25 will connect with U.S. 441 on the east side of the highway via a signalized intersection but will end as a cul-de-sac on the west side of U.S. 441.

Starting the morning of Oct. 4, a segment of County Road (C.R.) 25 will be closed beneath the U.S 441 bridge in Lady Lake. This closure will allow bridge work as part of the U.S. 441 widening project between Lake Ella Road and Avenida Central.
The following detours will be in effect:
- Motorists driving south on C.R. 25 who wish to continue south should turn right (west) onto Fennell Boulevard, turn left (south) onto U.S. 441, and turn right (west) onto Oak Street to get back to C.R. 25.
- Motorists driving north on C.R. 25 who wish to continue north should travel east on Oak Street, turn left (north) onto U.S. 441, and turn right (east) onto Fennell Boulevard to get back to C.R. 25.
The closure is scheduled to begin as soon as the morning of Monday, Oct. 4 and remain in effect until the project is completed in fall 2023. Please note that the work schedule is subject to change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.
