NEWBERRY ‒ The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun work on work on U.S. 41 (State Road 45) with the addition of a right turn onto Southwest 15th Avenue in Newberry at Oak View Middle School.

Other improvements include milling and resurfacing, highway signage, lighting and other incidental construction on U.S. 41 at Southeast 15th Avenue.

FDOT hired V.E. Whitehurst & Sons, Inc. to complete this $674,000 project in late 2022, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.

Daytime lane closures and nighttime construction activities are expected throughout the duration of the project. Lane closures are prohibited in school zones from one hour before school begins to 30 minutes after school begins and one hour before school ends to 30 minutes after school ends.
