The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Seven is conducting a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) study along a portion of SR 50 in Hernando County. This PD&E study focuses on a segment of SR 50 from the Brooksville Bypass/SR 50A/East Jefferson street to I-75 – a distance of approximately 8.2 miles.

SR 50 is a major east-west corridor in Hernando County, connecting to numerous regionally significant corridors, including US 19, Suncoast Parkway, US 41, I-75, and US 301. SR 50 is a hurricane evacuation route, a designated truck route, and is part of the state’s Strategic Intermodal System (SIS).

Study Purpose and Need

In an effort to improve mobility and enhance safety within the corridor, several alternatives will be developed; including options for widening this portion of SR 50 from four to six lanes and adding features such as sidewalks and bike lanes.
