The purpose of the project is to resurface the roadway in the southbound direction only. Improvements also include pedestrian, bicycle, and safety improvements along both sides of the road. The addition of sidewalk and access management improvements (median changes) are also included throughout the project limits. Intersection lighting is proposed at C.R. 452 and C.R. 44. Additionally, roadway lighting is proposed from south of C.R. 452 to Pine Meadows Golf Course.
