SunRail parking lot expansion construction will affect entry into the DeBary Station Parking Lot

SunRail parking lot expansion construction will affect entry into the DeBary Station Parking Lot

Motorists need to be alert for changes

DeBary – Beginning the week of April 3, the northernmost entrance along U.S. 17/92 to the DeBary SunRail parking lot is closing for approximately two-to-three weeks for reconstruction. The entrance is currently a right turn lane (only) into the lot from southbound U.S. 17/92, just south of Fort Florida Road. When the project is completed, the lane will offer access both in and out of the lot.

SunRail customers will still have a couple options during this closure:

  • Use the second entrance to the SunRail lot, just to the south along U.S. 17/92.
  • Make a right turn onto Fort Florida Road, and then turn left into the entrance of the SunRail lot.

In addition, intermittent closures of the outside lane on southbound U.S. 17/92 are scheduled daily from 9 a.m.-to-3 p.m. to allow for construction. The sidewalk along the southbound side of the roadway is also closing while work occurs. The work is part of $1.7 million project to nearly double the size of the DeBary SunRail lot, adding 212 parking spaces, as well as increasing access to-and-from parking areas. The project is nearing completion and is expected to wrap up in May.

Please note bad weather or other unexpected conditions may affect the schedule. Construction concerns/questions? Please contact Steve Olson, Regional Communications Manager, Florida Department of Transportation; steve.olson@dot.state.fl.us or 386-943-5479.
