The Florida Department of Transportation is starting a project to help make the ride smoother along a portion of State Road (S.R.) 44/New York Avenue in DeLand. Crews will be sealing cracks in the concrete and removing and replacing damaged concrete slabs at various locations between Boundary and Hill avenues.
Construction is to begin Monday, Dec. 11, at Boundary Avenue, moving east, and is expected to finish in fall 2018. The project also includes replacing the concrete at the intersection of Plymouth Avenue and Woodland Boulevard, which is expected to occur toward the end of the project.
During construction, motorists can expect daytime and nighttime lane closures with flagging operations on S.R. 44, as well as nighttime detours. No lane closures are permitted during peak morning and afternoon travel between Clara and Fairview avenues, and no daytime lane closures are permitted on Woodland Boulevard.
Please note that construction schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances. Electronic message boards will be used to alert motorists to lane closures and detours, and updates will be available on the FDOT’s Central Florida website CFLRoads.com.
