The excessive rain from Thursday forced an extended maintenance job on U.S. 41 in Naples; however, the roads are set to reopen Friday afternoon.

The Florida Department of Transportation was working on a scheduled maintenance stormwater drainage project when the storm drains began to overflow due to scattered rainstorms.

FDOT proceeded to close the section of U.S. 41 from Goodlette Frank Road to 10th Street South, Tuesday, which was scheduled to reopen Thursday but was later postponed due to weather conditions.

FDOT said provisions have been made to turn the westbound two lanes onto Goodlette Frank Road into a constant right turn to ease the flow of traffic, with traffic signal updates as well.

The section of U.S. 41 is scheduled to be reopened by noon, Friday.
