This project is widening US 19 from four lanes to six lanes between S. Jump Court and W. Fort Island Trail in Citrus County. A shared use path, sidewalks, and storm water ponds are also being constructed with this project.
Progress Update > Traffic Shifted to New Alignment on Southbound US 19
Construction reached another milestone on October 18, 2023, with southbound traffic now shifted to new pavement from W Fort Island Trail to south of W Venable Street. Traffic is now in the final alignment with a median separating northbound and southbound US 19 travel lanes throughout the project area from S Jump Court to W Fort Island Trail. Both directions remain two lanes in each direction, with third lanes expected to open in spring/summer 2024.
* Construction cost includes original construction contract amount plus approved contract changes. It does not include inspection oversite.
