Westbound University Parkway will be closed Wednesday and Thursday at the Interstate 75/University Parkway interchange.
As part of construction on Florida’s first diverging diamond interchange, the road will be closed under I-75 at the interchange for both days.
“The contractor anticipates a temporary detour route at the I-75/University Parkway interchange at night/overnight Wednesday, Jan. 18 and Thursday, Jan. 19 between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. while crews install drainage pipe across University Parkway,” according to the notice. “All ramps will remain open.”
Never miss a local story.
For motorists traveling from east of the interstate, they will be directed to travel north on I-75, exit at 217B, enter southbound I-75 and exit at 213. For motorists traveling north on I-75 and wishing to travel west on University Parkway, they will also be directed to the State Road 70 exit before looping back onto I-75 and exiting at University Parkway.
The closure is part of the $74.5 million project, which is completely federally funded and expected to be completed in time for the World Rowing Championships. Prince Contracting LLC is completing the project.
