This project also includes the replacement of the Ocklawaha River Bridge with two bridges at a lower profile. Wildlife crossings are provided throughout the project. This project will begin construction in Fall 2028.
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.
