About

This project will create a new four-lane roadway connecting CR 578 (County Line Road) to Ayers Road (CR 576) at US 41. Improvements include widening County Line Road between the Suncoast Parkway and the new Ayers Road connection. 

As part of the new Ayers Road project, an 11-foot wide multi-use path will be built on the north side of CR 578 and the west and north sides of the new Ayers Road. The new multi-use path will connect to the Suncoast Trail. 

New traffic signals will be installed at both intersections of Trillium Boulevard and Ayers Road and the intersection of Ayers Road and US 41.

The 2.9-mile project is just north of the Pasco/Hernando County line. It begins east of the Suncoast Parkway and ends at US 41 and Ayers Road in Masaryktown.

Construction is anticipated to finish the summer of 2022.
