This project consists of widening/reconstruction of SR 500 / US 441 to a six-lane divided urban roadway from north of S.R. 46 to S.R. 44/Donnelly Street in Lake County; a total distance of approximately 2.4 miles in length.
The proposed roadway typical section is a six-lane high speed urban roadway consisting of six 12-foot travel lanes (three in each direction) with a 6.5-foot inside paved shoulder, 6.5-foot outside paved shoulder (for bicycle lanes), and curb and gutter. The median separation is 30 feet in width. The existing pavement (24 feet in each direction) of the existing travel lanes is proposed to be milled and resurfaced. Five-foot sidewalks are provided on both sides within the existing right-of-way.
Stormdrains and stormwater ponds would be required.
Right of way acquisition is anticipated to accommodate for stormwater ponds and drainage easements, and intersection improvements (at the U.S. 441/Donnelly Street/S.R. 44 signalized intersection and the U.S. 441/Pine Avenue unsignalized intersection).
