The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) announced on Oct. 6 that all State Road 52 lanes are open in the construction project corridor beginning east past Interstate 75 and ending at U.S. 301, after State Road 52 becomes Clinton Avenue once past Prospect Road at the edge of St. Leo.
New State Road 52 runs through San Antonio and through the new Mirada Community, which features the largest human-made lagoon in the country.
According to FDOT, the contractor will need to do periodic day and night lane closures along the corridor to finish the work from east of I-75 to Fort King Road. Motorists are advised to stay within the posted 45 mph speed limit and use caution because construction work may be active throughout the project corridor.
This project was the widening and realigning State Road 52 from Uradco Place to Fort King Road.
- Between Uradco Place and Bayou Branch Canal the existing road will be widened to a four-lane divided roadway.
- East of Bayou Branch Canal, the new alignment of four-lane divided State Road 52 has been built south of the former State 52 (now County Road 52) tying into Clinton Avenue.
- Clinton Avenue between County Road 579 and Fort King Road has been widened to a four-lane divided road.
- Clinton Avenue between Pasadena Avenue and U.S. 301 is now part of the new State Road 52. The section of the former State Road 52 between Bayou Branch Canal (west of Mirada Blvd.) and U.S. 301 is now designated County Road 52.
State Road 52 traffic was directed to the new alignment in February.
