|Limits:||SR 683 (US 301) from South of 25th Court East to South of 13th Avenue East|
|Start of Current Phase:||Mid 2023|
The Florida Department of Transportation will launch a road improvement project on SR 683 (US 301) from south of 25th Court East to south of 13th Avenue East. The project spans 7.6 miles of roadway and will include milling and resurfacing, widening, curb and gutter, and sidewalk construction to improve safety for both drivers and pedestrians.
Additional work consists of guardrail and drainage improvements, bridge expansion joints, and lighting and signalization improvements at seven designated intersections. The project will also include improvements to signing and pavement markings.
The project includes a High Friction Surface Treatment (HFST) on the bridge over 1st Street (north of the larger 26th Street flyover bridge) on SR 683. The HFST will require a three-day period to complete, with lane closures as needed.
Variable message signs and flaggers will keep travelers aware of roadway conditions. Be prepared for large construction vehicles in the area and noise from construction equipment. For more information, please stay tuned to weekly RoadWatch Reports, traffic advisories and FDOT social media.
