Workers use heavy equipment Friday morning in downtown Inverness as work continues on a road project along the heavily traveled road.
Cables tie up roadwork

A collection of cable pipes is the culprit behind the delay of a road project at a busy Inverness intersection.

Contracted by the Florida Department of Transportation, Pave-Rite Inc. has worked since September 2015 to put in new stormwater drainage pipes along the north side of State Road 44 between Apopka Avenue and Grace Street.

Pave-Rite, a Lecanto-based company, will also repave S.R. 44 from Cherry Avenue to Highland Boulevard.
