390 Widening Project Plans

Posted: Updated:
State Road 390 will undergo a major facelift in the coming years.  A multi-lane reconstruction project is now in the final stages of the planning process, with construction planned to begin in 2016.

The roadway will be widened form its current two lanes, to six lanes.  Plans also include bike lanes and sidewalks.  The goal is to not only alleviate congestion that is already being felt, but also to handle traffic in the future from projected growth in the area.

Construction start times will be staggered, but at times, the entire length of Hwy 390 stretching from 23rd street to Hwy 77 will be under construction.  There are no plans to close any part of the road while work is underway.

The project is fully funded for right-of-way acquisition and construction.
