About

This project will widen US 98 to a 4-lane divided roadway from south of old Lakeland Highway to north of Townsend Road and realign US 98 from north of Townsend Road to US 301.

The realignment allows US 98 to align with Clinton Avenue, which will become the new SR 52 at the intersection at US 301. 

A roundabout is planned for the new intersection of US 98 and Clinton Avenue east of US 301.

The existing bridge over CSX Railroad and old Lakeland Highway will be replaced with twin bridges.

Design and Right of Way activities are currently underway. Construction is anticipated to begin in late 2023.
