IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

Construction on this project is temporarily suspended. The original project contractor submitted a letter on July 28, 2021 informing the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) that it was financially unable to perform or complete the performance of the work as prime contractor, which constitutes a voluntary default by the contractor.

FDOT projects have contract bonds issued by a surety company, which is a contract requirement. The surety is in the process of contracting with a completion contractor.

A project completion date will be determined once the completion contract is awarded and a schedule is agreed to by the completion contractor and the Department.

Updates about hiring a new contractor and resuming work will be posted on this page and sent to list subscribers (click the button above this section to subscribe to the email alert list for this project).

Your patience is appreciated while the completion contractor process moves forward.

This project will widen SR 52 to a six-lane divided highway from the Suncoast Parkway to east of US 41.  In addition to the widening, a 12-foot wide multi-use trail will be built along the north side of SR 52. The project also includes approximately one mile of widening on US 41 approaching the SR 52 intersection.
