Starting in early 2021, CFX will begin widening SR 417 to six lanes (three lanes in each direction) to improve traffic flow on one of CFX’s busiest expressways. CFX is also adding wider median shoulders that can temporarily accommodate additional traffic during emergency response events, such as traffic accidents or hurricane evacuations. Sound walls are being proposed along the corridor.
The SR 417 Widening project will be broken into the following five segments to minimize impact to motorists and will take approximately four years to complete all five segments once work is underway.
