Wildlife crossings are provided at the Deep Creek Bridges and approximately one-quarter mile south of the entrance to the Hear Island Conservation Area.
This project consists of the widening and reconstruction of State Road (S.R.) 15/U.S. 17 from two lanes to four lanes from DeLeon Springs to S.R. 40. A roundabout will be added at the intersection of S.R. 15/U.S. 17 and Spring Garden Ranch Road. In addition, drainage improvements and a shared use path (along the right side of the roadway) will also be included as part of this project.
