About

The New Roadway is now OPEN!!!

The construction team has been working nearly around the clock to open the road several months sooner than originally planned. 

Motorists should expect both daytime and nighttime lane closures throughout the work zone while the team finishes the last details of the project. 

Cone and Graham, Inc., on behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation, began construction on the $59.7 million extension of SR 56 between Meadow Pointe Blvd and US 301 in southeastern Pasco County in February 2017. 

The new six-mile long, four-lane divided roadway includes a ten-foot wide multi-use trail on the south side of the road, a five-foot wide sidewalk on the north side of the road and seven-foot wide bicycle lanes on the shoulders in each direction. 

There are new signalized intersections on Morris Bridge Road where the new SR 56 crosses it and on US 301 where the new SR 56 ties into it.
