The east and westbound inside travel lanes on U.S. 41 will be closed between Main Street and Sunset Drive Thursday night, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.

The lane closures are scheduled to begin Thursday at 8 p.m. and end Friday at 6 a.m. Traffic will be diverted to the outside travel lanes. The FDOT is urging motorists to use caution or seek an alternate route, if possible.

The lanes will be closed so construction crews can work on concrete barrier wall maintenance.

The closures are part of the Gulfstream Roundabout project, an $8.6 million project that’s building a roundabout at U.S. 41 and Gulfstream.
