Traffic relief at Dover intersection

The Florida Department of Transportation is widening a section of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (SR 574) to make room for two new left turn lanes onto Gallagher Road in Dover. A new traffic signal will also be added as part of the improvements to this intersection. This should be a relief to the many drivers backed up waiting to make a left onto Gallagher Road.

Construction activities and lane closures are scheduled Monday through Friday from 8:30a to 4:30p and from 7:00p to 7:00a. The $1.1 million project is expected to finish in the spring of 2016, weather permitting. For more information, email or call 813/612-3200.
