INFORMATION

SR24, Love Creek to SR1

Project Overview:

These corridor improvements are comprised of two projects to improve the roadway safety and operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. Phase I involves improvements from east of Mulberry Knoll to SR1 and Phase II involves improvements from the Love Creek Bridge to the limits of the Phase I work. The projects have been phased as such due to the complexity, funding requirements and impacts to the traveling public. Please click on the links below for additional information on each of the two projects

A Public Workshop is scheduled for April 16, 2018 from 4:00-7:00pm at Beacon Middle School.

SR24, Mulberry Knoll to SR1

Project Overview:

This project is the first phase of the larger planned SR24 Corridor Improvements that will improve the roadway operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. This project will widen SR24 to facilitate the continuation of the existing four lane section with center turn lane from SR 1 to west of Plantation Road. The improvements will then reduce back to the existing roadway section where the second phase of the SR24 corridor improvements will continue the widening. The project will also provide intersection improvements at SR24 and Plantation Road by adding a thru/left turn lane in both directions of Plantation Road. Stormwater management and multi-modal facilities will be installed throughout the project limits. The project will require utility relocations, some of these relocations may occur in advance of the project.

Project Limits:

The project is located along the SR24 corridor, between Mulberry Knoll Road and SR1. The approximate limits stretch along SR 24 from 1000 feet northeast of Mulberry Knoll Road to SR 1, including improvements of approximately 1000 feet along both Warrington and Plantation roads.

Project Need:

The SR 24 Corridor is one of the few major east/west connector roads for local and beach traffic moving across the state. There are multiple Highway Safety Improvement (HSIP) sites throughout the corridor, as is with the section included in this project. The massive growth in permanent residents and beach goers alike has degraded the level of service to unacceptable levels and as such the Department is committed to improving the roadway facilities.

Project Schedule:

  • Required Right-Of-Way for the Project is currently being acquired.
  • Final Design is scheduled for Fall 2018.
  • Construction is anticipated to begin in Winter 2019.

SR24, Love Creek to Mulberry Knoll

Project Overview:

This project is the second phase of the planned SR24 Corridor Improvements that will improve the roadway operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. This project will widen SR24 to facilitate the continuation of the existing four lane section with center left turn lane from west of Plantation Road, western limits of phase 1, to the Saddle Ridge housing development. From Saddle Ridge the roadway section will reduce to a two lane section with center left turn lane and will continue to Love Creek. The intersection of SR24 with Mulberry Knoll is planned to be converted to a signalized intersection with improvements on both legs of Mulberry Knoll. Stormwater management and multi-modal facilities will be installed throughout the project limits. The project will require utility relocations, some of these relocations may occur in advance of the project.

Project Limits:

The project is located along the SR24 corridor, between Love Creek and Mulberry Knoll Road. The approximate limits stretch along SR 24 from east end of bridge over Love Creek to 1000 feet northeast of Mulberry Knoll Road, including improvements of approximately 700 feet along Mulberry Knoll Road.

The SR 24 Corridor is one of the few major east/west connector roads for local and beach traffic moving across the state.
