Red Bug flyover in Casselberry still "a go" crews said



SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - The Red Bug flyover is set to open at midnight Wednesday, easing the drive for more than 65,000 people a day.

The nearly $25 million flyover will connect State Road 436 to Red Bug Lake Road.

Crews were still working at the site late Tuesday night to get the road open in time.

The project was actually supposed to open last Saturday, but heavy rain delayed part of the flyover from being paved.

The paving was finally done in the last few days and now the two-lane flyover will allow drivers traveling south on State Road 436 to turn left to get onto red bug without being held up at the light.

The project, which started in 2011, has caused some traffic headaches with confusing signs as to where drivers could and could not turn.

One motorist told Channel 9’s Renee Stoll the opening of this flyover couldn't come soon enough.

“It's just a lot of traffic back-ups going through here, but that's because they're widening the road and putting in sewage and all that stuff for this flyby,” William Register said.

Crews told Stoll everything is a go and the flyover is still set to open at midnight.
