The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an informational open house on Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. about the proposed resurfacing project on State Road (S.R.) 25/U.S. 27 from south of Arlington Ridge Road to south of County Road (C.R.) 33. The meeting will be held at the First Baptist Church of Leesburg, Southern Campus, 25900 U.S. Highway 27.
Project information will be on display, and there will be a presentation on a continuous loop running throughout the meeting. Project representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.
The intent of this project is to mill and resurface the existing pavement to extend the life of roadway. Resurfacing improvements include travel lanes, shoulders, auxiliary lanes, and median crossovers. The project also includes extending turn lanes in some areas and constructing a new directional median opening with a left turn lane at the First National Bank driveway just south of Pelican Isle Drive. Various safety and maintenance improvements are included to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and FDOT standards regarding pedestrian features, including adding crosswalks at C.R. 33.
