Motorist Advisory: U.S. 41 E. And Collier Blvd.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office urges motorists to use caution and to expect delays at the U.S. 41 East and Collier Boulevard intersection for the next several weeks.

Traffic in each direction has been reduced from three lanes to two lanes as crews work toward completion of construction of the U.S. 41 and Collier Boulevard Intersection Capacity Improvement Project, which is planned in approximately two months. The project limits extend approximately one-quarter mile in each direction.  The speed limit has been reduced to 35 mph in this area during the construction project. Drivers are reminded to stay alert and drive with care.

Motorists can also expect paving operations between the Wal-Mart Supercenter entrance and just north of Triangle Boulevard starting Friday, Sept. 25 and continuing through Friday, Oct. 2, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting.

Traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction for brief segments during the paving project.

Deputies will be present to assist with traffic. In addition, electronic message boards, lighted arrow boards, advance warning signs and barricades are being used to assist motorists.
