The Florida Department of Transportation's contractor, Astaldi Construction Corporation, is widening approximately four miles of US Highway 301 from SR 674 (Sun City Center Boulevard) to Balm Road in Hillsborough County.
As part of this project, the contractor is making the following improvements:
- Widening the roadway to a six-lane divided rural road with a raised median and paved shoulders
- Adding a five-foot sidewalk to the west side and a twelve-foot multi-use path to the east side of the roadway
- Constructing ponds and adding a new drainage system
Most construction activities are taking place Monday through Friday during daytime hours; however, when necessary work requiring lane closures will occur at night from 8:30 pm to 7:00 am.
This project is expected to finish in late 2020.
- There are no lane closures at this time.
