- Brooksville – State Road 50 will be closed at I-75 between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday (October 11 and 12) nights. All ramps will be open, but no traffic will be able to cross under I-75 on SR 50.

WESTBOUND SR 50 DETOUR: Westbound SR 50 traffic will be detoured onto northbound I-75 and use Exit 309 (CR 476). Drivers will turn right at the end of the exit ramp onto CR 476, cross over I-75, then turn left and enter southbound I-75 and use the southbound Exit 301 to SR 50.
Night lane closures on I-75 in northern Hernando County

Changed exit point for northbound I-75 exit to US 98/SR 50
- Brooksville – A new ramp for the northbound I-75 exit to US98/SR 50 (Exit 301) opened early Thursday morning, October 5. The new exit point from northbound I-75 is about one mile south of the former exit point, meaning drivers need to be very alert that they now exit much sooner than for the previous exit. Signs are in place to guide motorists to the new exit point.
