The Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) contractor, Ajax Paving Industries of Florida, begins work at the end of the year 2019 to widen SR 82 from Gator Slough Lane to SR 29, from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway, while allowing for a future six-lane roadway. Additional improvements on this 3.2 mile corridor include construction of 5-foot wide paved shoulders, which will also serve as bike lanes, a 54-foot wide median, a 10-foot multi-use trail along the south side, and a 5-foot sidewalk along the north side. The intersection at SR 29 will be changed from a stop condition with flashing beacon to a roundabout. The construction is expected to be completed by summer of 2022. Work occurs during the day and during nighttime/overnight hours. Lane closures on SR 82 may occur in both the westbound and eastbound travel lanes from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
