Kings Highway will be expanded to a four-lane divided highway with dual lefts and single right turning movements and designated bicycle lanes. Indrio Road will be improved immediately West and East of the intersection with dual thru lanes, single left and right turning movements and designated bicycle lanes. For pedestrians, the project includes the construction of a 12-foot wide shared use path along the west side of Kings Highway from the intersection south and along Indrio Road from the intersection west past the Lakewood Park Elementary School. Six-foot wide sidewalks will be constructed everywhere else, within the limits of construction.
Improved traffic flow thru the intersection and a safer facility for bicyclist and pedestrians. All the improvements are consistent with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) 2012 Kings Highway and 2002 Indrio Road Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Studies. The intersection will be reconstructed to function at an acceptable level of service for the next 20 years.
