Lane closure along SE 17th Street/SR 464 due to sewer line break

Ocala motorists can expect a lane closure along SE 17th Street/State Road 464, from SE 20th Avenue to SE 22nd Avenue, effective immediately.

The lane closure is due to a sewer line break, according to a press release from the City of Ocala. During an extreme weather event on Thursday, an 18-inch force main break occurred, which caused nearly 596,000 gallons of untreated sewage to spill.

Crews diverted flows, repairs were made, and the area has been sanitized. Eastbound and westbound traffic on SE 17th Street/State Road 464 has been reduced to one lane.

All necessary devices will be in place to redirect traffic in the area. During construction times, drivers may experience noise, dust, and heavy equipment within the project area.

For more information, please contact the City Engineer’s Office, Capital Projects Division at 352-629-8419.
