A Groundbreaking Ceremony will be held on Thursday, March 30, 10:00 a.m. at 55 Homestead Road South.
Homestead road will be expanded to a four-lane divided highway starting north of Alabama Road and ending around the curve just south of Sunrise Boulevard near the Moose Lodge, according to consultant Kris Cella of consulting firm Cella, Molnar & Associates.
Four-foot on-road bicycle lanes are included in the widening. A six-foot sidewalk will be constructed on both sides of the roadway.
According to Vince Miller of Lee County DOT, construction should be completed in 2019.
The Homestead road project will take approximately two and a half years (30 months) of construction time, according to Miller.
