Want To Build A Road? - Florida Wants Your Bid
LABELLE, FL. -- The Florida Department of Transportation is soliciting bids for the expansion of State Road 80 from the current two lanes to four. The work is from Birchwood Parkway east about five miles to Dalton Lane.
SR80 is now four lanes from Birchwood Parkway west into Lee County. Eventually the main road through Hendry County will be four lanes to Clewiston. From US27 east to the county line is now four lanes, with only US27 west to Birchwood still two lanes.
It's expected to take 700 days to complete the 5 mile stretch once begun. The state estimates the cost should be $13,520,246.
