Longwood – Motorists are advised of intersection changes coming to Georgia Avenue/2nd Place and Ronald Reagan Boulevard (County Road 427) beginning Wednesday, April 19. The Florida Department of Transportation is constructing a directional median that will prevent left turns onto Ronald Reagan Boulevard from Georgia Avenue and 2nd Place. The change is needed for safety.
Contractors will be installing a raised median beginning April 19. During the work, drivers can expect northbound and southbound inside lane closures on Ronald Reagan Boulevard between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
With the new configuration, drivers heading west on Georgia Avenue will have to turn right onto Ronald Reagan Boulevard and make a U-turn to head south. Drivers traveling east on 2nd Place will have to turn south onto Ronald Reagan Boulevard and make a U-turn to go north. Drivers on 2nd Place may also access Ronald Reagan Boulevard northbound from 12th Avenue.
Motorists are also advised that work will continue April 17 – 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the railroad crossing on Georgia Avenue. The crossing will remain open.
The work is part of SunRail’s Phase I safety items project and is being performed by the Middlesex/Herzog Joint Venture.
