About

This is a project to widen U.S. 441/U.S. 27/State Road (S.R.) 500 from four to six lanes between Lake Ella Road and Avenida Central. Both northbound and southbound U.S. 441 will be expanded from two to three lanes, and bicycle lanes and sidewalks will be added along the length of the project. The FDOT will also do drainage work, add signage, make lighting upgrades, make median access changes and improve the aesthetics of the roadway with new landscaping.

A key aspect of the project was the removal of U.S. 441 bridges over County Road (C.R.) 25 which will allow for a new, at-grade intersection to be built at that location. C.R. 25 will connect with U.S. 441 on the east side of the highway via a signalized intersection and end as a cul-de-sac on the west side.
