I-75 from N. Jones Loop Road to US 17: Construction project: Work continues to widen approximately four miles of the interstate from four to six lanes and widen the bridges over N. Jones Loop Road (exit #161) and Marion Avenue/Riverside Drive/Seminole Gulf Railway.  The project also includes roadway safety improvements and bridge work under I-75 on N. Jones Loop Road, US 17, and Marion Avenue/Riverside Drive. 

  • Motorists should expect Marion Avenue/Riverside Drive fully CLOSED under I-75 for crews to complete bridgework, safety improvements, and roadway work.  This closure is scheduled to remain in place until late spring 2018, weather permitting.

    • Motorists on Marion Avenue, west of the interstate may use Marion Avenue to Marlympia Way to reach US 17.
    • Motorists on Riverside Drive, east of the interstate may use Riverside Drive to Regent Road to reach US 17.      
  • Motorists should expect one lane closed in each direction on N. Jones Loop Road at the interchange from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Friday for crews to perform bridgework.

    Motorists should expect one lane closed in each direction on I-75 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday night through Saturday morning for crews to mill and resurface the interstate, place barrier wall and work in the median. 

  • Motorists should expect travel lanes from north of N. Jones Loop Road to south of US 17 to shift as milling and resurfacing progresses through the week.

Variable message signs will be in place to alert drivers that work is underway. Drivers should use caution while traveling in this area and be alert to trucks entering and exiting roadways in the work zone. Estimated completion is early 2019, weather permitting.
