Project Details
Work Type: Resurfacing
Phase: Construction
Length: 8.846 miles
Construction Cost: $15.4 Million
Project Start: Fall 2021
Est. Completion: Spring 2023

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will be resurfacing U.S. 441 from Northwest 20th Street in Ocala to the U.S. 441/301 split in Sparr. In addition to resurfacing, the project will make safety improvements to medians along this approximately 8-mile stretch of roadway by converting full median openings to bi-directional medians in some locations and closing median openings in other locations. These improvements will help reduce the number of points where motorists come into conflict, which increases safety and helps to enhance traffic flow in the area. The project will also change the configuration of the road at the U.S. 441/301 split. At completion, vehicles in both lanes of northbound U.S. 441 will be able to turn right onto U.S. 301, while only vehicles in the left (inside) lane of U.S. 441 will be able to continue north toward Gainesville. This change is being made to alleviate intermittent backups that occur as traffic stacks in the left lane waiting to turn onto U.S. 301.
