Welcome

FDOT is preparing design plans to expand State Road 82 from two to four lanes from Alabama Road to Homestead Road in Lee County.

Proposed improvements include expanding SR 82 from the existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane road, expandable to six-lanes in the future.  The corridor will have a 54-foot grassed median separating two travel lanes in each direction, a six and a half-foot bicycle lane in both directions, a five-foot sidewalk on the north side and a 10-foot multi-use path on the south side.

Median openings

With addition of a median through this segment, FDOT develops a plan for median openings and turn lanes. How median openings are spaced and where they are placed assist in more efficient traffic movement on the highway, reduction of crashes, and enhanced safety for pedestrians. Median openings allow access to side streets and allow left turn and U-turn opportunities. During the design phase, we will update the website with the latest median opening information. Again, early public involvement and comments are important during development of the median plan. Comments suggesting changes made late in the process cannot be incorporated into design plans.

Please visit Get Involved for more information about how to reach project team members with questions and/or comments.
