Construction for the roundabout started in fall of 2019 as part of the SR 82 Road Widening Project from Gator Slough Lane to SR 29. The project improvements include widening SR 82 from Gator Slough Lane to SR 29 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway, while allowing for a future six-lane roadway. The cost of the project is $29 million and the estimated completion is summer 2022.
