The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) plans to widen SR 15 (US 17) from two lanes to four lanes from DeLeon Springs to SR 40. Drainage, wildlife crossings, and a shared usage path are improvements planned in addition to the project widening. One wildlife crossing will be provided at the Deep Creek Bridges and the other will be located approximately 1/4 miles south of the Hear Island Conservation Area entrance. FDOT has budgeted $16 million for right of way acquisition and $45 million for construction. Letting is scheduled for Summer 2020 and construction is expected to begin shortly thereafter.
