About

This project will widen and realign SR 52 from Uradco Place to Fort King Highway in eastern Pasco County. 

  • Between Uradco Place and Bayou Branch Canal the existing road will be widened to a four lane divided roadway. 
  • East of Bayou Branch Canal, the new alignment of four-lane divided SR 52 will be built south of the existing SR 52 tying into Clinton Avenue. 
  • Clinton Avenue between CR 579 and Fort King Road will be widened to a four-lane divided road as well.

Clinton Avenue between Pasadena Avenue and US 301 will also become the new SR 52. 

The section of existing SR 52 between Bayou Branch Canal and US 301 will be designated CR 52 after the construction of the new SR 52 is complete.    

Construction is expected to finish in the summer of 2024.
