SR714 From Martin Downs Blvd to Citrus Blvd
This $21M project, SR714, involved the full reconstruction of West Martin Highway between Citrus Boulevard/ SW 48th Avenue and SW Martin Downs Boulevard from a 2-lane undivided rural roadway to a 4-lane divided urban roadway and shifting the alignment 30 feet to the south to mitigate drainage and driveway slope impacts. The existing bridge structure over the Turnpike will be widened to increase capacity. Additionally, SW Leighton Farms Road was also realigned further west to line up with SW Deggeller Court to create a 4-legged intersection. Further improvements included a new closed-drainage system with a wet treatment pond along with signing, signalization and lighting upgrades. The final roadway will consist of four 11-foot travel lanes with a raised 22’ median, two 7-foot bike lanes and 6’ concrete sidewalks on both sides. The final bridge will consist of four 11’ travel lanes with a 19’ raised traffic separator and two 7-foot bike lanes enclosed pedestrian bridge fencing.
