I-75/Alligator Alley Rest Area at mile marker 63: Work continues to build two recreational access areas adjacent to the Big Cypress National Preserve backcountry trails, replace the existing rest area, build a new public safety center and water treatment plant, and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment plant. Rest area closed until completion, estimated fall 2014.
US 41/Tamiami Trail East from SR 951 to Greenway Road: Crews continue work to expand two-lane US-41 to six lanes from SR-951 to Joseph Lane and to four lanes from Joseph Lane to Greenway Road. A 30-foot median will separate northbound and southbound travel lanes. The project also includes a 10-foot multi-use pathway along southbound travel lanes and a six-foot sidewalk parallel to northbound lanes. Median openings spaced throughout the project allow for left turns and U-turns. Project completion is expected in fall 2016.
