The Florida Department of Transportation began a widening and resurfacing project on State Road 21 (Blanding Boulevard) from County Road 218 to Black Creek in February 2020.
Once completed, this project will add two lanes of capacity to the four-lane section of Blanding Boulevard between County Road 218 and Black Creek and provide more efficient east-west movements at the intersection of Blanding Boulevard and County Road 218. The County Road 218 bridge over Black Creek will be replaced to provide a wider bridge in order to accommodate the improvements within the project corridor. The County Road 218 bridge will remain to traffic open during construction.
Sacyr Construction was selected to complete the $16.4 million project. Construction is estimated to begin this month and be completed in fall 2021, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
