Drivers will encounter a traffic shift this week on John Young Parkway between Florida’s Turnpike and Commodity Circle/South Park Circle. Traffic will be shifted to the newly constructed outside lanes (see map below).
Because of the shift, the right turn lane from eastbound Sand Lake Road to southbound John Young Parkway will be open. In addition, the northernmost driveway to the Walmart shopping center will be re-opened.
The purpose of this traffic shift is to allow the contractor to work on the new “flyover” bridge for John Young Parkway over Sand Lake Road.
The work is part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to widen and reconstruct State Road (S.R.) 482/Sand Lake Road from west of International Drive to east of Florida’s Turnpike.
Motorists are asked to use extra caution while driving in the area and be aware of the wider turning movements and relocated roadway markings (e.g., stop bars and pedestrian crosswalks) at the intersection.
Please note construction schedules may change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT Communications Office at 386-943-5479 or [email protected].
