Some nighttime delays expected as highway reconstruction continues


Night time drivers may experience some delays.  The I-75 southbound exit ramp onto Newberry Road will be closed for repaving tomorrow night and possibly Wednesday night, as well. Florida Department of Transportation Spokeswoman Laurie Windham says these closures are part of an even bigger project to reduce traffic back up coming into Gainesville.

This is one of the final phases in a two million dollar ramp reconstruction project, scheduled to be finished within the next few weeks.
