The multi-lane reconstruction consists of widening 3.37miles of U.S. 98 from four to six lanes. This portion of U.S. 98 is a designated hurricane evacuation route and Strategic Intermodal Systems highway facility. Additional right-of-way will be required for stormwater retention ponds and intersection improvements. Construction is not currently funded within the department’s Five Year Work Program.
