Traffic Advisory: Left Turn Lanes on E.E. Williamson Rd. Closing for 6–8 Months

Motorists should be advised that the left turn lanes on E.E. Williamson Road between Penelope Drive and Sunshine Tree Boulevard will be closing for six to eight months beginning as soon as 4 a.m. on Wednesday, August 12.

Access to all side streets and driveways will be maintained throughout the scheduled work.

The long-term closures are necessary to implement a new traffic pattern on E.E. Williamson Road that will direct motorists onto a new bridge over Interstate 4.

When the new bridge is fully completed in mid-2021, the left turn lanes will be restored.

Please continue to use caution while driving through the active construction zone. Note that construction schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances.

Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT Communications Office at or by phone at 386-943-5593.
