The purpose of the project is to improve safety at the intersection of State Road (S.R.) 40 (Silver springs Boulevard) and S.R. 492 (NE 14th Street) in Ocala. The proposed design will replace the existing free-flow dual right turn lanes from westbound S.R. 40 to S.R. 492 with a single right turn lane under signalized control. The project also will provide a 7-foot-wide buffered bike lane beginning on S.R. 40, connecting to the existing bicycle lane on S.R. 492, and add new pedestrian crosswalks. Work on the project will include replacing the existing traffic signal poles, reconstructing the concrete island next to the right turn lanes, and resurfacing the affected roadway.
