SR 426 / CR 419 Phase I Widening Project
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun construction of the State Road 426/County Road 419 Phase I widening project. The project construction will be primarily on State Road 434, between Smith and Franklin Streets where new additional lanes are being added. Also, there will be some construction on Franklin Street that may close the south side sidewalk temporarily. The Franklin Street pond will also be expanded to almost double its current size. The pond expansion will require the majority of existing trees to be removed. New landscaping will be installed as a separate project along the construction corridor following completion of the widening. Construction of the widening is anticipated to last approximately one calendar year. Motorists should expect lane closures and some delays as construction progresses.
