Drivers on State Road (S.R.) 44 (New York Avenue) in DeLand are advised of upcoming scheduled weekend detours at the intersections with Clara Avenue and Florida Avenue just west of U.S. 17/92 (Woodland Boulevard). The closures are weather permitting and are needed to accommodate concrete road repairs.
From about 9 a.m. Friday, May 11, to approximately 6 a.m. Monday, May 14, the contractor plans to close the S.R. 44 at Clara Avenue intersection. Work also will be occurring in two locations on S.R. 44 between Clara Avenue and Florida Avenue. Access to local businesses will be maintained.
The posted detour routes will utilize Florida Avenue, Rich Avenue, Howry Avenue and Stone Street. (Please see attached map).
The contractor is expected to close the intersection of S.R. 44 and Florida Avenue the following weekend from about 9 a.m. Friday, May 18, to about 6 a.m. Monday, May 21.
