Motorists are advised of planned detours along State Road (S.R.) 44 near Woodland Boulevard from about 6 p.m. Friday, June 8, through Sunday, June 10. Woodland Boulevard will remain open. Access to businesses and residences between Amelia Avenue and Woodland Boulevard, and between Clara Avenue and Woodland Boulevard will be maintained.
The closure is needed for concrete repairs on S.R. 44 on both sides of Woodland Boulevard. The work is weather permitting. During the closure, S.R. 44 traffic will be detoured around the work zone using Clara, Amelia, Rich and Howry avenues. Please see attached map.
The closures are part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to repair and replace sections of concrete roadway along S.R. 44 between Boundary and Hill avenues. An additional detour is expected near Alabama Avenue later in the month.
Electronic message boards will be used to alert motorists to lane closures and detours, and updates will be available on the FDOT’s Central Florida website, CFLRoads.com.
Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT District Five Communications Office at 386-943-5479 or D5-PIO@dot.state.fl.us.
FDOT advises drivers to slow down and use extra caution in construction zones.
