State Road 70 is set to be closed overnight for two days this week, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

Beginning Wednesday at 8 p.m., crews will close two lanes on SR 70 eastbound under Interstate-75. At 11 p.m., all eastbound lanes will be closed until 5 a.m.

Westbound lanes will also be affected, the release said. At 8 p.m., two westbound lanes will close, but will not be totally blocked off.

The I-75 northbound and southbound ramps will be reduced to one lane from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well.

The lane changes will be in affect Wednesday and Thursday, according to the release.

Drivers traveling east at this time are advised to take I-75 south to University Parkway and return to the interstate northbound and exit at State Road 70, or use local routes.
