A corridor study for US 301 in and around the city of Starke is still in a preliminary stage, with a PD&E study under way.  There are three alternatives for this project: a no project alternative, an urban alternative, and a rural alternative.  The urban alternative would leave the route on its current alignment but upgraded to a six-lane arterial (control access).  The rural alternative would bypass the city to the west and be a full on limited access highway, complete with grade separated interchanges.

Of the three, I would like to see the state build the limited access alternative, as that area is in need of bypasses around all the cities and towns it traverses.  Having lived in that area for 7 years, I've sat in traffic on that particular stretch more than I can count.  Plus it would be the first real limited access bypass for a US Highway constructed in Florida.

what would Starke Police do if they couldn't put up a speed limit 25 sign anymore??

Shubuta, MS lost out when U.S. 45 was realigned to a bypass. Hopefully the same would happen with Starke.

Oh, I am sure they would find a way out to the bypass if and when it got built, knowing the police up in that neck of the woods.  There would probably be a new Hardee's or Waffle House built at the interchange with Florida 16 and those could be their staging areas...

is us 301 currently a two-lane or four-lane highway? how much development is along the current alignment through Starke?
