The Notice to Proceed was issued today, Monday July 17, 2017,  for the CR 491 road widening project.  As we anticipate periodic traffic disruptions and delays through the 491/44 intersection as well as along the roadway adjust your travel times accordingly and use caution in the construction area.

Halls river Road
Citrus County Utilities will be completing utility work in preparation of the replacement of the Halls River Road Bridge. This will require lane closures on Halls River Road to allow staff to access the utility lines. Work is anticipated to begin in late March, pending weather conditions, and should be completed in approximately three weeks. The actual replacement of the Halls River Road Bridge is scheduled to begin in June 2016.
