On Thursday, May 16, 2019, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), pursuant to 23 U.S.C. § 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016, and executed by FHWA and FDOT, granted Location and Design Concept Acceptance for the US 301 PD&E Study from County Road (C.R.) 470 East to State Road (S.R.) 44.
The proposed improvements consist of widening U.S. 301 from two to four lanes from C.R. 470 East to S.R. 44. A portion of U.S. 301 from C.R. 525 East to C.R. 468 will be realigned south of the City of Coleman, and will be constructed with four lanes. The existing portion of U.S. 301 between C.R. 525 East and C.R. 468 will remain as two lanes. The proposed improvements also include roundabouts at the intersections of U.S. 301 with C.R. 525 East and C.R. 468, and a diverging diamond interchange (DDI) at the Florida’s Turnpike. U.S. 301 from north of the Florida’s Turnpike to S.R. 44 will be reconstructed to an urban typical section with curb and gutter, bike lanes, and sidewalks. Additional information and maps of the proposed improvements are available on the project website at www.cflroads.com/project/430132-1.
This project will now proceed to the next phase of development. For more information please contact:
