Project ID: 414547-1
FDOT is improving this five mile segment to four lanes. During construction, crews will widen the existing bridge over Charlie Creek, build a new two-lane bridge over Charlie Creek Overflow, and reconstruct the existing two lanes. Crews also will build new two-lane bridges over Charlie Creek and Charlie Creek Overflow and construct two new travel lanes. A 64-foot grass median will separate northbound and southbound lanes. Improvements include new roadside drainage swales and stormwater ponds to manage water running off of the roadway. Driveways may be modified in location and slope to accommodate the new alignment and higher proposed roadway; however property owners will still have access to US 17.
CURRENT STATUS: CONSTRUCTION
FDOT hired Watson Civil Construction to construct this project. Construction began in September 2016.
