The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) is currently in the Design phase of a project to widen and reconstruct SR 500 (US 441) from SR 44 to north of SR 46 in Lake County. The proposed roadway typical section for the project is a six-lane high speed urban roadway with bicycle lanes, curb and gutter, and sidewalks. Additionally, the existing pavement would be milled and resurfaced. Right-of-way acquisition is anticipated to accommodate for stormwater ponds, drainage easements, and intersection improvements. The project is currently on hold until funding is available for construction. Right-of-way acquisition is scheduled to begin in either 2019 or 2020.
