The existing pavement (24 feet in each direction) of the existing travel lanes is proposed to be milled and resurfaced. Five-foot-wide sidewalks are provided on both sides within the existing right of way. Storm drains and stormwater ponds would be required. Right of way acquisition is anticipated to accommodate 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).
This project consists of widening and reconstructing State Road (S.R.) 500 / U.S. 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. The proposed roadway typical section is a high speed urban roadway consisting of six 12-foot travel lanes (three in each direction) with a 6.5-foot-wide inside paved shoulder, 6.5-foot-wide outside paved shoulder (for bicycle lanes), and curb and gutter. The median separation is 30 feet in width.
