The Florida Department of Transportation recently announced two projects have been combined to be built under one construction contract, with the new project beginning Nov. 13.
FDOT began construction on repaving both directions of 3.25 miles of Land O’ Lakes Boulevard/U.S. 41, beginning at Bell Lake Road in Land O’ Lakes and heading south, ending at County Line Road/Willow Bend Parkway.
Additionally, FDOT also will repave both directions of a quarter-mile stretch of State Road 54, heading west and ending at Knight Road.
The improvements in this project include milling and resurfacing, pavement reconstruction, pavement markings, drainage improvements, pedestrian/bicyclist enhancements, signage and sidewalk repairs.
According to FDOT, over the construction duration, drivers can expect many nights of lane closures between 7:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. There also will be a few areas with around-the-clock lane closures, but the same number of travel lanes are planned to be maintained by constructing temporary pavement and shifting traffic.
No timeline was provided for completion of the $13 million project,
