Construction crews are continuing to install utility and storm drain systems and constructing temporary pavement on the Venice Bypass segment of U.S. 41 from Gulf Coast Boulevard to Bird Bay Drive, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has announced.
Completion of the project is expected in the spring of 2018, a news release notes.
Motorists are asked to expect intermittent nighttime/overnight closures of the northbound and southbound lanes from 8 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. throughout the project limits on Sunday and Monday, an FDOT news release says:
- Southbound: Traffic on southbound U.S. 41 from Bird Bay to Warfield Road will shift to the newly constructed lanes along the west side of the road during the nighttime/overnight hours of Sunday, Feb. 19.
- Northbound: Traffic on northbound U.S. 41 from Ridgewood to Bird Bay will shift to the newly constructed lanes along the west side of the road during the nighttime/overnight hours of Monday, Feb. 20.
Motorists should be mindful of the construction signs and the on-site traffic control officers “and use caution while traveling through the project area,” the release adds. Bergeron Land Development is the contractor, the release.
