About

This project is to increase capacity and enhance safety along U.S. 17/State Road (S.R.) 15 from south of Spring Street to Lake Winona Road. The project would widen U.S. 17 from two lanes to four lanes to enhance mobility in the area. A new roundabout at the intersection of U.S. 17 and Spring Garden Avenue/Spring Garden Ranch Road is also planned to improve operations and safety.

The project also includes a multi-use trail from Spring Garden Avenue to Lake Winona Road and a new entrance into the Department of Forestry compound.  This project is a portion of the overall project approved in the 2006 PD&E study to widen U.S. 17 to north of S.R. 40 (FPID No. 410251-1).

To implement the design and construction more easily, the project has been divided into three segments. This project, from south of Spring Street to Lake Winona Road, is segment 1. Segment 2 extends from the Duke Energy Substation south of S.R. 40 to north of S.R. 40.  Segment 3 will widen the roadway from south of Winona Road to the Duke Energy Substation and includes a new bridge over Deep Creek, as well as a wildlife crossing culvert.
