This is a Florida Department of Transportation 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.
- Monday, November 20, through Wednesday, November 22, from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.: Expect a southbound lane closure on U.S. 441 from Griffin View Drive to Hermosa Street to prepare the roadway for a traffic shift. Please reduce your speed, alertly merge into the open lane, and cautiously pass through the work zone.
- Southbound U.S. 441 Traffic Shift (Griffin View Drive to Hermosa Street): Scheduled to begin as early as Monday, November 27, southbound traffic on U.S. 441 from Griffin View Drive to Hermosa Street will be shifted to the inside travel lanes as median improvements continue.Traffic will remain in a two-lane configuration each way at all times. Please maintain a safe speed while traveling through the construction zone and remain cautious of your surroundings
