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.
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. 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.
