This project includes design, permitting, utility coordination, and construction to widen the remaining middle section of Burnt Store Road (4.4 miles) to a four-lane roadway from a point near Notre Dame Boulevard to a point north of Zemel Road. The design includes an open swale concept with a large median that will accommodate two future lanes. Stormwater ponds, concrete pipes, and structures will be installed to collect wastewater. Water, sewer, and reclaimed water mains are included in the project. Six foot wide sidewalks will be constructed along the east side and the southwest side of the roadway. LED street lights are also included. FDOT has contributed $4 million to the construction project through a grant. The remaining funding has been provided through the gas tax.
