The Florida Department of Transportation (“FDOT”) is currently in the design phase of a project to improve US 19 (SR 55) from North of SR 59 (Main Street) to Northside Drive. The project will change the existing six lane divided highway to a six lane controlled access roadway. Additionally, an overpass bridge is planned midway between SR 580 and SR 586 (Curlew Road) to accommodate U-turn movements and serve as a pedestrian crossing. Right of way has been budgeted for $14.6 million. Construction is not yet funded and will be scheduled at a later date.
