Lane Closures, Traffic Shifts, Delays for I-75 Construction is Florida

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following I-75 construction will result in lane closures, traffic shifts, congestion and delays this week:

  • Wesley Chapel/San Antonio, FL – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 anywhere from north of County Road 54 (Exit 279) to north of SR 52 (Exit 285) between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, April 28 and Sunday through Friday (April 30 – May 5) nights.
  • Brooksville, FL – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 from south of SR 50 (Exit 301) to the Hernando/Sumter counties line between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (April 30 – May 4) nights.
  • Brooksville, FL – One lane of SR 50 (Cortez Boulevard) may be closed from I-75 up to a half mile in each direction between 6:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (April 30 – May 4) nights and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (May 1 – 5).

During some of the night closures, drivers can expect traffic shifts and delays between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on SR 50 in the I-75 interchange area as traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction and both directions of traffic placed on the westbound lanes. This will result in two-way traffic on what normally is a two-lane westbound section of roadway.

In addition, all traffic entering and exiting I-75 may be limited to right turns only. This will mean drivers who normally would be making a left turn movement onto or off the ramps may have to go the opposite direction and make a U-Turn on SR 50 to go in their desired direction. Traffic congestion and delays are expected during the traffic shifts on SR 50 and on the I-75 exit ramps whenever traffic is in this temporary overnight alignment.

Traffic Shift and New Exit Point for I-75 in Florida

The Florida Department of Transportation reports that a new, temporary exit point opened for traffic exiting northbound I-75 to State Road 50/US 98 (Exit 301).

Motorists should be aware that this new exit point is about one-half mile south of the previous exit ramp, so drivers need to look to exit sooner. If drivers pass the new exit point, the next exit (CR 476/Exit 309) is about 8 miles north.

Northbound I-75 traffic was also moved to a new alignment for the next construction phases. Northbound I-75 traffic is now shifted to the west and is sharing the same bridge over SR 50/US 98 that southbound traffic is using. This traffic pattern will be in use as the former northbound bridge is removed and replaced with a longer and wider bridge. Drivers need to be extra alert in this area and be aware that traffic entering northbound I-75 from SR 50/US 98 enters about one-half mile north of the previous entry point.

2017 Spring Training – Florida’s Grapefruit League

Spring is just around the corner… and spring training is about to begin! Florida is the home of Major League Baseball’s Grapefruit League and spring training 2017.

Spring training typically lasts about six weeks, starting in late February and running until just before the season opening day (and often right at the end of spring training, some teams will play spring training games on the same day other teams have opening day of the season), traditionally the first week of April. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training first because pitchers benefit from a longer training period. A few days later, the position players arrive and team practice begins. Team members normally wear their batting practice uniforms for the duration of spring training and only wear their normal jerseys beginning on Opening Day.

Below you’ll find 2017 Spring Training park information, maps, and home game schedules for all the teams. more…
