This project proposes to widen about 4.7 miles of U.S. 301 (State Road (S.R.) 35) from County Road (C.R.) 525E to Florida's Turnpike in Sumter County. The improvements follow the recommendations of the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study completed in 2019.

The purpose of this project is to help accommodate traffic growth and alleviate congestion. Proposed improvements include widening U.S. 301 within the project limits to provide two lanes in each direction separated by a raised median. Safer accommodations for both bicycles and pedestrians will be included. Additionally, a portion of U.S. 301 will be realigned to avoid impacts within the city of Coleman, and two roundabouts are planned on either end of the realigned road that will help to slow traffic speeds for improved safety. The project also includes coordination with a planned turnpike project to build a new interchange.

The project has funding for right of way acquisition and construction.
