Motorists need to be alert for changes as early as Monday
Beginning next week, and perhaps as early as Monday, April 3, the northernmost entrance along U.S. 17/92 to the DeBary SunRail parking lot is closing for approximately two-to-three weeks for reconstruction. The entrance is currently a right turn lane (only) into the lot from southbound U.S. 17/92, just south of Fort Smith Road. When the project is completed, the lane will offer access both in and out of the lot.
SunRail customers will still have a couple options during this closure:
- Use the second entrance to the SunRail lot, just to the south along U.S. 17/92
- Make a right turn onto Fort Smith Road, and then turn left into the entrance of the SunRail lot.
In addition, intermittent closures of the outside lane on southbound U.S. 17/92 are scheduled daily from 9 a.m.-to-3 p.m. to allow for construction. The sidewalk along the southbound side of the roadway is also closing while work occurs. The work is part of $1.7 million project to nearly double the size of the DeBary SunRail lot, adding 212 parking spaces, as well as increasing access to-and-from parking areas. The project is nearing completion and is expected to wrap up in May.
Please note bad weather or other unexpected conditions may affect the schedule. Construction concerns/questions? Please contact Steve Olson, Regional Communications Manager, Florida Department of Transportation; [email protected] or 386-943-5479.
