Looking through the latest GIS data from FDOT, CR 559A along Fred C. Jones Boulevard on the north side of Auburndale is now SR 559A.

I assume the most current GIS data you have for Florida is from the TDA (tada!) site? I downloaded those files back on January 6 to do work on finishing up the maps and KMLs for Wikipedia in Florida but I guess now I have to go back and verify a lot of the work I had already done.

(And boo to FDOT because a lot of the county maps for the larger counties date back to the 00s decade)

Looking through the latest GIS data from FDOT, CR 559A along Fred C. Jones Boulevard on the north side of Auburndale is now SR 559A.

The SLD's were updated recently too, showing both CR 559A with its old alignment, and Fred C. Jones Boulevard as part of SR 559A.

Further north in Perry, the latest GIS data shows the realignment of U.S. 221 around Downtown Perry (the SLD shows a revision date in October 2018). This includes reclassifying CR 359A as SR 359A. The SLD for SR 359A was updated last year. However as of last month per roadman65's photos, US 221 is still signed along Jefferson Street north toward Downtown.

U.S. 221 overlaps with U.S. 27 west, then U.S. 19/27 north to SR 359A. SR 359A / Wright Road returns U.S. 221 to its original alignment.

I wonder how long it will take FDOT to resign US-221 there.  I honestly think they should have just shortened US-221 and end it @ US-19/27 & CR-359A.  Then sign FL-55 instead on the small remaining segment.

Anyways, great, another 'new' state route to keep an eye on for being posted (FL-559A) for the TM project....  :-D :ded:

Had Brent update his ARCMap at work (FDOT) with the latest on Monday. Not sure if that's what is on the public site.
I will pan around some more and look for other changes. Will post about them here if there are any.

I've inquired with FDOT Central Office about those out of date GHM's before (last in 2018). Don't know why it's taken so long to convert those old Microstation based maps for Hillsborough, Duval, etc. For now FDOT is focusing quite a bit on Covid19 and many employees are telecommuting. So I imagine updating the GHM's is low priority at the moment.

Agreed on US 221. Just truncate it to SR 359A and US 19/27. A similar rerouting, the relocation of US 441 in Lake City is also signed now. US 441 should just continue the overlap northward with US 41, removing the dog leg west on US 90.

Found a few other changes for the recent FDOT state roads data:

State Road 99 was added to the GIS data from U.S. 90 (Mobile Highway) north 2.59 miles to Isaacs Lane. Accordingly, 6.20 miles of State Road 292 were dropped south of Gongora Drive.

SR 228 along Monroe Street, 0.39 miles from U.S. 1/90 (Main Street) to Washington Street was dropped as was SR 228 along Adams Street 0.32 miles from Main Street to Liberty Street. The Hart Bridge Expressway section of SR 228 from Adams Street east to a point just beyond Festival Park Avenue (1.18 miles) was also eliminated. This leaves just 0.24 miles of SR 228 within the wye interchange at U.S. 1 Alternate.

FWIW, here are the county road changes:

CR 216 dropped east of US 92/SR 687 (4th Street N) 1.80 miles to Bayou Grande Boulevard in St. Petersburg.
CR 184 shortened 0.20 miles west of 31st Street N in St. Petersburg.
CR 332 dropped from US 27/41 east 2.98 miles to the Marion County line.
CR 4013 eliminated from Center Avenue in Daytona Beach
CR 4042 eliminated from University Boulevard in Daytona Beach
CR 4001 dropped from University Boulevard northward 1.90 miles along Halifax Avenue
CR 399 11.09 miles west from CR 399 (Pensacola Beach Boulevard) to Fort Pickens State Park eliminated.
CR 359A switched to SR 359A in Perry.

The rare class of "downgrade and subsequent upgrades" on the FDOT state system over time.

Also, two -A routes becoming state roads and keeping their suffixes is also somewhat unusual for recent times.

They also added the Pecan Park segment of FL-243 in the GIS too.

Good catch.

The gap in SR 429 north of Apopka was filled. The segment is 8.24 miles from SR 414 to the Lake County line.

SR 453 was also added: 0.86 miles in Orange County and 1.13 miles in Lake County.

I noticed that the FL 292 signs were gone when I crossed into Florida back in February.

FL 50 is being widened from I-75 through US 301 in the Ridge Manor area.

http://www.fdottampabay.com/project/254/416732-4-52-01

I was hoping there might be some online video coverage of the progress of construction, but all I can see are a few pics of the reconstruction of the bridge over the Withlacoochee River. I guess I'll have to sneak a minor road trip to check the progress myself.

And I now have 2424 posts on this board, so to mark that...




My cousins in Brooksville and Dade City are going to be doing cartwheels over this one, they HATE 50 right now.

Some observations from an 800 mile drive northwest to the Florida Panhandle and back yesterday to finish up sections of SR 59, 65, 71 and 73 I had not clinched.

The dumb replacement of the sign for Exit 275 (too lazy to post the photo from yesterday) on I-10 westbound now has no arrow. This was the old sign - https://www.aaroads.com/fl/010/i-010_wb_exit_275_06.jpg :pan:

The bridge taking SR 20 over the Apalachicola River westbound was restriped from two lanes to one (roadman65 may have posted about this previously). There is a partial shoulder on the left and not quite a full shoulder on the right now.

U.S. 221 is still signed the same through Perry.

Love how you can see the flashers at US 19/98 and CR 326 six miles out from Gulf Hammock at night.

Not sure when this changed, but the flashers for the hospital near Emerald Oaks Drive were upgraded to traffic lights - https://www.aaroads.com/fl/019/us-019-098-n-at-emerald-oaks-dr.jpg
With the addition of signals at CR 488's west end some time ago, there's now three successive signals heading south from the Cross Florida Greenway now.  :banghead:

The six lane construction of U.S. 19/98 heading south from Crystal River to Homosassa Springs has traffic shifted to the northbound lanes with one lane per direction and 35 mph / 45 mph speed limits.

There's construction along U.S. 98 southeast of CR 480 through the Sugarmill Woods area in Citrus. Nothing is posted on the FDOT D7 web site, so not sure what this is.

The overpasses for the Suncoast 2 extension appear to be completed. Heading south along SR 589, traffic is reduced to a single lane with a 25 mph speed limit through the old toll plaza still. The Suncoast Parkway switched to AET on February 1 of this year.

Checked on some of the Keys shields and other vintage signs as well:

North after Three Rivers Road (old S-67A) in Carrabelle, gone - https://www.aaroads.com/fl/067/cr-067-n-at-av-k-2.jpg

Florida State Road swap in Polk County
« Reply #2910 on: May 04, 2020, 09:42:10 AM »

Thanks to some digging by our Southeast mod florida and Brent, the newly designated State Road 559A along Fred C. Jones Boulevard (CR 559A) in Aurburndale is part of a jurisdictional transfer between FDOT and Polk County. SR 559 south of Fred Jones Boulevard to SR 655 (Recker Highway) is dropped. CR 559A is now inventoried as SR 559A, and CR 655 along Berkley Road south from Fred Jones Boulevard to US 92 is now state maintained. Berkley Road south and Fred Jones Boulevard become part of a realigned SR 559 per a memorandum dated April 1, 2020.

The SLD showing Berkley Road as part of the state highway system (SHS) was just revised on April 20.

A similar rerouting, the relocation of US 441 in Lake City is also signed now. US 441 should just continue the overlap northward with US 41, removing the dog leg west on US 90.

They finally have done that one?  Does that mean the 'Truck' signage for US-441 is now gone too?

Have not posted photos on the site yet, but here's how it is signed now:
Northbound after SR 10A, there is signage posted for "Local Truck Route" and "No Thru Trucks", followed be a confirming marker. At US 90, a North US 441 <- shield references the dog leg west back to US 41.
US 90 west at US 41 has US 441 Truck Route <->
US 41/441 north after NW Madison St has confirming markers for both routes.

US 41/441 north at NW Bascom Norris Drive shows both SR 100A and U.S. 441 Truck Route turning east. Only a SR 100A shield is posted on Bascom Norris Drive after US 41, but US 441 is acknowledged rejoining its former route at the traffic light with N Marion Avenue.

Would love to see that 100A shield, as that would give me a reason to add it to the usafl system for TM when I do the US-441 reroute.

Ask and you shall receive.

US 41/441 north at SR 100A where they split:



SR 100A shield posted in place of US 441 north on Bascom Norris Drive east of US 41:


The rest are posted on a new page covering US 441 North from Lake City to Georgia.

Just submitted the reroute of US-441 and the new FL-100A to TM.  Should be live on the site later tonight. ;)

Found a few other changes for the recent FDOT state roads data:

State Road 99 was added to the GIS data from U.S. 90 (Mobile Highway) north 2.59 miles to Isaacs Lane. Accordingly, 6.20 miles of State Road 292 were dropped south of Gongora Drive.

SR 228 along Monroe Street, 0.39 miles from U.S. 1/90 (Main Street) to Washington Street was dropped as was SR 228 along Adams Street 0.32 miles from Main Street to Liberty Street. The Hart Bridge Expressway section of SR 228 from Adams Street east to a point just beyond Festival Park Avenue (1.18 miles) was also eliminated. This leaves just 0.24 miles of SR 228 within the wye interchange at U.S. 1 Alternate.

FWIW, here are the county road changes:

CR 216 dropped east of US 92/SR 687 (4th Street N) 1.80 miles to Bayou Grande Boulevard in St. Petersburg.
CR 184 shortened 0.20 miles west of 31st Street N in St. Petersburg.
CR 332 dropped from US 27/41 east 2.98 miles to the Marion County line.
CR 4013 eliminated from Center Avenue in Daytona Beach
CR 4042 eliminated from University Boulevard in Daytona Beach
CR 4001 dropped from University Boulevard northward 1.90 miles along Halifax Avenue
CR 399 11.09 miles west from CR 399 (Pensacola Beach Boulevard) to Fort Pickens State Park eliminated.
CR 359A switched to SR 359A in Perry.

Do you know what happened to SR 850 since it was deleted and given to the county in 2018? Did it become CR 850?

Was dropped altogether by last October in the GIS Data. The same in last month's data. SR 811 stems 10.44 miles north and CR 809A extends 5.88 miles west from the former west end. FWIW, there was still a JCT SR 850 shield on SR 811 south, and a reassurance marker eastbound ahead of Jasmine Drive as of March 20. There is some road work leading east ahead of Jasmine Drive, so maybe that including removing that sign.

Why is the northern portion of Route 315 designated 315C up in Clay County?

Why is the northern portion of Route 315 designated 315C up in Clay County?

FDOT shows the segment as CR 315 on some maps, CR 315C on others. You're right, it seems as though the whole thing should be just "315"; the CRs 315-A and B are well north, over by Green Cove Springs. Some of the county/secondary routes use suffixes for alternates, connectors, and spurs but they didn't seem to have a pattern.

Old maps show it wasn't numbered; CR 315 was S-315 (Secondary), and was unpaved as of 1960. Shows up as SR 216 before the late-1940s renumbering. It's curiously signed as 315C in the field, as of 2014:





Could be that the A was first, then they acquired the land and swapped 315 to that. Maybe 315C was similarly created, and they stopped caring about how it connected to the rest of the system. Put together, "315" is one of the longer county routes in the state!

Drove 249 miles yesterday to check out the I-4/SR 408 interchange, which has five ramps opening per an announcement by FDOT and Governor DeSantis earlier this week. Traffic has been noticeably increasing throughout this week, and congestion has returned to the Downtown Interchange (I-4/275), Howard Frankland Bridge, I-75 at SR 56, etc.

The never ended repaving project that started in October 2018 along I-4 from 50th Street east to McIntosh Road (Exit 14) resulted in "replaced in kind" sign installs.

Did not get a photo, but the half mile sign for Orient Road was replaced (should have been moved to an overhead): https://www.aaroads.com/fl/004/i-004-e-exit-006-01.jpg

There's even less padding between the text and border on the replacement of the signs for McIntosh Road:
https://www.aaroads.com/fl/004/i-004-e-exit-014-05.jpg
https://www.aaroads.com/fl/004/i-004-e-exit-014-06.jpg

Heading westbound, the original sign plans were dusted off, as Ybor City is now referenced twice! The Tampa - 13 mile sign now has Ybor City - 12. Because YBor City was reinstituted as its own city...
The assembly further west was carbon copied: https://www.aaroads.com/fl/004/i-004-w-exit-009-03.jpg

The one mile sign for Exit 10 was installed in 2016, but apparently already needed to be replaced. The new panel is narrower with condensed font for Thonotosassa and Mango off centered.

C. Fred Jones Boulevard is still signed as CR 559A and no other changes have been made for the approved SR 559 realignment. A new traffic light is being installed for the massive distribution center built along the north side. One lane is closed for additional grading and work for the site along CR 559A westbound as well. There are inanely placed TRUCK ROUTE banners on all of the shields.

Took SR 559 south to Downtown Auburndale and U.S. 92. It is still posted.

Drove U.S. 92 east to Lake Alfred for the first time in over decade so I can replace a remaining page on southeastroads.com. There is a reassurance marker for CR 555 on the old alignment along S Buena Vista Drive. It was date stamped January 2019 no less.

Clinched CR 547 leading north from Davenport. There are shields for it at Ernie Caldwell Boulevard. North of that arterial, the road varies between a rural two lane roadway and stretches of widened roadway at subdivisions built.

SR 538 trailblazers are posted on US 17/92 at Ronald Reagan Parkway (former Kinnie Harmon Road). No signs for CR 54 though. The sprawl at the intersection continues with two self storage facilities coming soon within the southeast quadrant of the intersection. SR 538 has begin and end shields just past the intersection with Sienna Boulevard.

The 2.215 mile long widening of US 17/92 from west of Poinciana Boulevard to Ham Brown Road is dragging on toward the east. While the new southbound roadway is partially in place west of Poinciana Boulevard, there is still a lot of remaining grading work to the east. Started in February 2019, work extends until Spring 2022. Way too long IMO.

No signs of construction for the planned flyover from US 17/92 south to Ham Brown Road (unsigned CR 535) either. Traffic is definitely returning to Florida, as the turn lane for Poinciana was backed up. The project is still listed in the design phase on the FDOT D5 site.

Heading into Kissimmee, traffic sucked. Signage for US 17/92 and the Truck route for US 17/92 is inconsistent. There's a set of trailblazers for the truck route at the off-ramp for Osceola Parkway from John Young Parkway northbound. The amount of development added by the SPUI there in the last five years is insane. This includes a massive apartment complex abutting the west side built in 2017-18.

Osceola Parkway traffic was terrible. The already congested intersection with Orange Avenue is getting more growth with the addition of "Renaissance Park II". The area development is fueled by the nearby Sunrail station.

Widening of Florida's Turnpike north from Osceola Parkway to SR 528 and US 17/92/441 still has a ways to go. The last of the flyovers at SR 417 are mostly built however. A pair of new overheads are up for Exit 254. These omit "Orange Blossom Trail" and instead display shields for SR 528, US 17/92/441 and an Airport trailblazer similar to https://www.aaroads.com/fl/091/fl-tpk-n-exit-254-02.jpg This works because, everyone refers to roads solely by number in Orlando...

Some of the piers for the flyover that will directly link I-4 west with Florida's Turnpike are in place. This is being built as part of an expansion project along the Turnpike from SR 528 northward to Interstate 4. Work extends to 2022.

Took I-4 into Orlando but bailed at John Young Parkway (CR 423) due to two lanes being blocked further north and the subsequent gridlock. Navigated along the street grid to check out the I-4/SR 408 interchange from below. There's still some work ongoing along the flyover from SR 408 west to I-4 west and bridge painting to be done on other ramps.

Still SR 527 shields for Orange Avenue / Rosalind Avenue on Anderson Street east and South Street west. The uncovered East-West Expressway trailblazer on Orange Avenue northbound is still in place as well.

US 17/92-SR 50 (Colonial Drive) at I-4 is still a mess. Traffic was backed up eastbound leading  to the signal with Hughey Avenue.

New Clearview signage is in place along I-4 westbound for SR 408 and Anderson Street. The kerning is awful on the Anderson Street overhead.

All signs on SR 408 westbound were replaced in kind and use Clearview font. Of course, CR 431 is still shown for Pine Hills Road, CR 526 for Old Winter Garden Road, etc...

The lone shield for CR 438 along Maguire Road southbound is still in place.

Replacement of the SR 33 bridge over Green Swamp south of CR 561 results in one lane of traffic controlled by signals. Was a surprising amount of truck traffic using SR 33 and several were queued up at the temporary traffic lights.

No confirming marker for CR 464 east of SR 33.

Construction on SR 33 had one lane of traffic for the addition of turns lanes for yet another distribution center between Polk City and I-4. Further southwest, the signal at University Boulevard is now fully operational. Heading into Lakeland, some grading work is underway on the curve southwest of SR 659. Widening of SR 33 is listed as in the design phase on the D1 web site, so maybe its for something else. There's a wall of apartment buildings built along the south side of SR 33 now along this stretch too.

The eastern leg of CR 582 along Griffin Road and Florida Avenue in Lakeland is not signed.

A single head signal was recently added in each direction at the Fletcher Avenue (unsigned CR 582A) intersections with Morris Bridge Road, Lettuce Lake Parkway and 56th Street. What is their purpose?

I was on SR 121 from Union County Road 125 north into GA.  I noticed no reassurance shields along the way.  The first shield north of CR 125 is at I-10. 

Then work is progressing along the extension of SR 23 around Green Cove Springs.  The future overpass over SR 16 is going to be super wide.  I assume it will become a SPUI.

SR 19 has so many random shields north of SR 40 and the defunct Cross Florida Barge Canal is still signed along it.

The end of SR 429 at its north terminus is now at that empty diamond interchange for CR 46A.  The ramps are open NB with barricades bumping you off while workers realign the freeway to connect to its extension, but the half mile warning guide was not changed to reflect the new pattern.  The ramp now departs at the ALL TRAFFIC MUST EXIT 1/2 MILE guide for SR 46 to Mt Plymouth and Sorrento.

They are still working on the US 441 and SR 46 intersection but signs are well in place.




Just to post some observations on a road trip I did today.


BTW, the Welcome Center is closed on I-95 entering Florida, but a checkpoint is there instead.  SR 121 at MaClenny is not secured so if you want a way into our state, head west on GA 40 to GA 121 through the area of Georgia that is south of the rest of the state border as the GA- FL line on SR 121 is 8 miles north of I-10 still west of Jacksonville.

So I-95 heading into the state is under security. Or am I reading it wrong?

There are COVID19 check points on both I-95 south and I-10 east.

US 17 is a good way also to bypass it all. Exit at 380 and head south to Yulee and re-enter from SR 200 and A1A.

https://www.claytodayonline.com/stories/construction-of-new-shands-bridge-to-start-a-year-early,20184

Another article in the Shands Bridge replacement project.

As SR 23 is currently underway near Green Cove Springs, its eminant to get the river crossing upgraded to handle a freeway load.
