The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District 5 has initiated a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study to evaluate a new interchange near the Interstate 75 (I-75) at County Road (C.R.) 514 (Warm Springs Avenue) overpass. The project area is located approximately 4.0 miles south of the I-75 and Florida Turnpike interchange and approximately 3.5 miles north of the I-75 at C.R. 470 interchange in Sumter County. The project limits extend north and south along I-75 at C.R. 514 and along C.R. 514 from 0.5 mile west of I-75 east 0.75 mile to the C.R. 525 Extension.
C.R. 514 is a two-lane, undivided, local roadway that crosses over I-75 at the project location. The purpose of this project is to improve the existing transportation network and support regional travel demand by providing additional access to I-75 at C.R. 514. The planned Florida Crossroads Industrial Activity Center (FCIAC) will serve as an intermodal freight logistics center and distribution hub, contributing to projected future travel demand in the region. In addition, residential development is expanding from the north and east toward the project area, increasing the amount of traffic in the region. The existing transportation network facilities in the project and surrounding area will be unable to support projected future demand.
