The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) completed railroad repairs in Lutz that forced two of the three northbound lanes of US 41 to close for five days last week.
FDOT public information officer Kris Carson said the right two lanes were closed in the area around Debuel Road in order to repair the track where it crosses US 41. All three northbound lanes reopened on Oct. 15.
“It was routine repairs that are needed every few years,” Carson said. “Everything went as planned, and there should be no more delays.”
Carson said the tracks need repair because of strain from vehicles that drive across the tracks. For more information on FDOT projects, visit www.dot.state.fl.us.
