- During the morning hours of 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 1 motorists should expect the southbound exit ramp to the rest area to be closed while crews pave this ramp. Additional paving will continue at the rest area throughout the week.
- THE ENTIRE REST AREA IS CLOSED UNTIL PROJECT COMPLETION, ESTIMATED FALL 2014. ALL FACILITIES (including the picnic area, parking, restrooms or potable water) are unavailable. Entrance and exit ramps at mile marker 63 are open for motorists to turn around if needed. FDOT cautions motorists to remain clear of the construction zone and be aware of construction vehicles entering/exiting the roadways around the rest area. Signs are posted to advise motorists of this closure. The rest area at mile marker 34 is open.
