This project consists of widening and reconstructing State Road (S.R.) 40 from the end of the four-lane section to east of County Road (C.R.) 314. The new roadway will have two 12-foot-wide lanes in each direction separated by a 40-foot-wide grassed median. A 12-foot-wide multi-use trail will run along the north side of the road from NE 60th Court to Ray Wayside Park near the Ocklawaha River Bridge.
