Overnight lane closures near CR 484 and I-75 interchange this week

A small stretch of County Road 484 near the Interstate 75 interchange will experience overnight lane closures as crews continue working to improve the roadway.

Motorists should expect nightly northbound lane closures from the intersection of CR 484 and CR 475A to the north project limit on CR 475A, according to a statement issued by the Florida Department of Transportation.

This week’s roadwork, which is part of FDOT Project 433651-1, will focus on a force main cutover.

“Please reduce your speed and exercise caution throughout the construction zone,” reads the statement from FDOT.

Lane closures have been a constant on roadways in the area, which is home to one of Ocala’s busiest interchanges.

The project consists of adding turn lanes, reconstructing the westbound through lanes, and modifying the existing I-75 bridge in order to accommodate the wider lanes.

The project will also improve bicycle lane and pedestrian sidewalk connectivity through the area, according to FDOT.
