Motorists are advised of periodic slowdowns along northbound Interstate 75 (I-75) north of U.S. 27 and southbound I-75 north of County Road (C.R.) 318 in Marion County during daytime hours Monday through Wednesday, March 25-27. Traffic will be briefly slowed down to 20 mph in both directions by Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) troopers to allow Duke Energy to replace transmission lines above the interstate. Once work is completed, traffic will be released.

FHP troopers will also briefly stop traffic for 5 to 10 minutes at the State Road (S.R.) 326 on ramp to northbound I-75 and the C.R. 318 on ramp to southbound I-75 while this work takes place.

Drivers should expect delays. Please drive alert, avoid distractions, and follow the direction of FHP troopers.
