To improve mobility and safety along the east-west corridor in Central Florida, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) plans to widen State Road (S.R.) 50 from County Road (C.R.) 757 in Sumter County to C.R. 33 in Lake County. The plans will widen S.R. 50 from two lanes to four lanes and provide other safety and operational improvements. These plans are being designed under two projects.
