Several East County roads will have detours during the next several weeks as the Florida Department of Transportation continues its resurfacing project of Interstate 75.

I-75: From S.R. 70 to the Kay Road Overpass Construction project — This project consists of milling and resurfacing the roadway, shoulder treatment, guardrail, traffic monitoring and signing & paving marking.

In addition, improvements are also being made to I-75 entry and exit ramps at State Road 64 and State Road 70. To complete these improvements, ramp closures at these interchanges will be necessary. Detours will be set up at these two interstate interchanges, as well as at the University Parkway interstate interchange. Weather permitting, ramp closures are scheduled to begin July 27 and continue through Aug. 3. However, there will be no ramp closures on Saturday, August 1st, 2009.

Closures are scheduled to begin at 11 p.m. each night and last until 5 a.m. each morning. Motorists will be directed to follow the suggested detour routes. Below is the current schedule for the anticipated I-75 entry and exit ramp closures.
