The Florida Department of Transportation is currently in the Design phase of a project to improve SR 40 at interchanges from Southwest 40th Avenue to Southwest 27th Avenue in Marion County. This project will improve the interchange at I-75 by extending the existing left turn lanes along eastbound and westbound SR 40 and providing dual left turn lanes and a right turn lane for northbound and southbound exit ramps. Additionally, improvements to SR 40 at the SW 27th Avenue intersection will be made to accommodate the new turn lanes. Right-of-way acquisition has been budgeted for $5.3 million and if funded through 2022. Construction is not yet funded and will be scheduled at a later date.
