The State Road (S.R.) 50 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study was 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 utilized 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 specifically looked 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 PD&E study started in January 2017 and concluded in June 2019. Following completion of the PD&E Study, the project was divided into four design segments. Information on these design segments may be found on cflroads.com at the following links:
435859-2 - SR 50 from SR 35 (US 301) to Hernando/Sumter County Line
435859-3 - SR 50 from Hernando/Sumter County Line to east of CR 478A
435859-4 - SR 50 from west of CR 478A to the Sumter/Lake County line
435859-5 - SR 50 from Sumter/Lake County line to CR 33
