This Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project includes the widening of State Road (S.R.) 500/U.S. Highway 441 from four to six lanes from Lake Ella Road to Avenida Central (at Griffin Avenue) along with the addition of bicycle lanes and sidewalks. The existing bridges over County Road (C.R.) 25 will be removed and replaced with an at-grade intersection.
Other project features include: signing and lighting, aesthetics (including landscaping), access management updates, and a plan for maintenance of traffic during construction.
