The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 7 is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study along US 301 from south of US 98 to SR 50. This PD&E study will focus on evaluating the widening of this section of US 301 in Pasco and Hernando Counties.
The project will evaluate widening US 301 from a 2-lane undivided facility to a 4-lane divided facility and include pedestrian/bicycle accommodations. Issues related to traffic operation, safety, access management, freight movements, and transit will also be addressed in the study. The study will also evaluate stormwater management facility (SMF) and floodplain compensation (FPC) sites. The acquisition of additional right of way (ROW) is anticipated on this project.
