Libra Drive speed limit reduced in heed of construction
The speed limit along Libra Drive has been lowered to 20 mph to accommodate the construction on the road, according to an email by the UCF Police Department.
Libra Drive is undergoing construction to expand from two lanes to a four-lane road, from the water tower to the entrance of Research Park.
In addition, a right-turn lane will be added at the intersection of Gemini Boulevard and Libra Drive. The road will also be leveled to prevent flooding.
UCF Police will be enforcing the change in speed limit and doubling the fines when construction workers are present.
Completion of the project is expected to be March 2016. Until then, police are advising drivers to find alternate routes so as not to create excessive traffic.
