The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is undertaking a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study to consider roadway improvements along US 301 in Hillsborough and Pasco Counties. The project begins at Fowler Avenue and extends north to the State Road (SR) 56 intersection with US 301, a distance of 13.1 miles. The PD&E study involves developing roadway alternatives that widen US 301 from two to four lanes. The project team will evaluate the engineering, social and environmental effects of widening the road and compare the effects for each alternative.

US 301 is a major north-south roadway used for travel through Hillsborough and Pasco counties and provides access to many of the area’s major roadways including I-4, SR 39, SR 54 and SR 52. It is an important roadway in the overall Tampa Bay area as it is listed as an emergency evacuation route.
