Motorists are advised that Old Dixie Highway and County Road (C.R.) 325 will be closed at U.S. 1 on Monday night, March 4, from about 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Northbound and southbound U.S. 1 will remain open.
The closure is needed to allow the contractor to make improvements at the temporary intersection. During the closure, traffic will not be able to turn onto U.S. 1 from Old Dixie Highway and C.R. 325, or turn onto Old Dixie Highway and C.R. 325 from U.S. 1.
The posted detours will be as follows (please see attached map):
- Northbound U.S. 1 traffic heading to Old Dixie Highway will stay on northbound U.S. 1, turn right onto Seminole Woods Boulevard, turn right onto State Road (S.R.) 100 and take southbound Interstate 95 (I-95) back to Old Dixie Highway (Exit 278) where access to C.R. 325 will also be available.
- Southbound U.S. 1 traffic heading to Old Dixie Highway or C.R. 325 will stay on southbound U.S. 1 and get onto northbound I-95 to Od Dixie Highway (Exit 278).
