Lane change U.S. 41

Workers place concrete barriers along a temporary road near South Dunnellon at the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Withlacoochee Trail, also known as County Road 39. Due to ongoing construction, the normal traffic pattern will be altered slightly east of U.S. 41 on a temporary road beginning early next week. The construction stems from the state's project to link the northern end of the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails to the Dunnellon Trail. An underpass is planned to take those utilizing the trail underneath U.S. 41 near County Road 39 in northern Citrus County. The 1-mile project will cost $5.6 million. The construction is expected to be completed in summer 2022, FDOT officials said.
