Florida State Road 713 (Kings Highway) travels 10.20 miles north from the interchange joining Florida's Turnpike with SR 70 (Okeechobee Road) at Fort Pierce to U.S. 1 east of Lakewood Park.

Construction started on September 17, 2018 widens SR 713 north from SR 70 (Okeechobee Road) to SR 68 (Orange Avenue) and the nearby overpasses for Interstate 95. Costing $45.22 million, the project rebuilds SR 713 from a rural two lane road to a four lane divided highway with a 30 foot wide median. Work includes relocating Canal C-40 and C-32, as well as Kings Highway at the Turnpike access road from SR 70. A 12 foot wide multi use path will be built along the west side of Kings Highway in addition to buffered bike lanes and six foot wide sidewalks in both directions. The 3.417 mile long project runs through Fall 2022.1

A separate project underway from June 12, 2017 to Summer 2019 improved SR 713 (Kings Highway) at the intersection with SR 614/CR 614 (Indrio Road). $17.8 million in construction widened Kings Highway and Indrio Road to a four lane, divided highway and added a 12 foot wide multi use path within the vicinity of their intersection.2
