The State Road (S.R.) 50 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study is being conducted to evaluate transportation improvements to the approximately 20 mile section of S.R. 50 between U.S. 301 in Hernando County to County Road (C.R.) 33 in Lake County.
This PD&E study will follow the State Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) process involving preliminary engineering to determine roadway and intersection concepts; environmental evaluations to assess impacts; and, significant public involvement with agency coordination.
The PD&E study is specifically looking at options such as widening to four-lanes, the addition of passing lanes, or a combination of these improvements. More information about the study is available in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in the project files below.
A corridor planning study, which began in December 2014 and was completed in 2016 supported the recommendation to complete a PD&E study. The final documents from this study are available in the project files section below.
The PD&E study started in January 2017 and is anticipated to last approximately two years.
