Lane Closures
  • Lake County motorists, please be advised: The inside travel lanes and medians on U.S. 441 (Citrus Boulevard) northbound and southbound from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Griffin Road will be closed beginning Monday, Feb. 28.

    The closures will allow the roads to be resurfaced, as well as curb and traffic separators to be installed within the median area. Median and lane closures will be in effect until the work is completed.

    Signage and traffic control devices will direct drivers through the remaining open lanes during these closures.

    Please note that construction schedules are subject to change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. Always be cautious and avoid distractions when driving through a work zone.
