A major detour is being put in place for drivers traveling northbound on U.S. 17/92 during overnight hours during the next several weekends. This comes as maintenance work is done to the railroad bridge above U.S. 17/92 at the Winter Park-Maitland city line. The repair includes fixing the bottom portion of the bridge over the northbound side of the roadway.
The nighttime work is expected to occur during five weekends beginning this weekend. The closures each weekend are scheduled between 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. overnight Friday and overnight Saturday, and 8 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. Monday. Closures are planned to occur into the latter part of September. The cost for the project is estimated at $260,000.
The detour takes traffic off northbound U.S. 17/92, sends it westbound on Lee Road, to eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4), to eastbound Maitland Boulevard/State Road (S.R.) 414, then back to U.S 17/92. Northbound traffic can still access businesses up until the construction zone, but cannot go any farther than, nor under, the bridge.
Southbound traffic on U.S. 17/92 is not subject to any detours at this time. Updates are being posted on cflroads.com under Current News.
The Florida Department of Transportation urges you to pay attention and always drive with care in construction zones.
