Pasco County Gets New Highway | Pasco County Car Accident Lawyers Whittel & Melton

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has opened the first two lanes (of four total) of the new State Road 52 highway in Pasco County.

The first two lanes opened on Friday and now provides a direct route from I-75 to U.S. 301.

The entire four lanes of the $82 million project are slated to be open by the early months of 2024.

Here is everything you need to know about the new State Road 52 in Pasco County:

  • State Road 52 begins at Uradco Place and moves east where it connects to Clinton Avenue in Dade City
  • State Road 52 ends at U.S. 301 near U.S. 98
  • State Road 52 is hoped to ease the traffic at the current State Road 52 and Curley Road
  • State Road 52 will be managed by Pasco County
  • The four-lane 7-mile stretch of road should be complete by early 2024
  • GPS, Google Maps, and other mapping systems have been provided the road changes, but will need time to reflect these changes in their systems
Pasco County Gets New Highway

The new State Road 52 will not only be helpful to commuters, but also truck drivers as they can avoid travelling through small neighborhoods and towns. Pasco County has more distribution centers and warehouses popping up, so the ability to move truck more easily will be a great help to the county/community.

According to Florida’s regional transportation secretary, the new road is constructed from concrete, which should withstand heavy truck traffic better than traditional asphalt.

The new stretch of road aims to cut down on traffic pileups and give drivers a straight shot through the county. The hope here is also that the number of traffic accidents will decrease.

With just a few months into 2023, Pasco County has already seen 798 crashes resulting in 4 deaths and 824 injuries, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV ). In 2022, Pasco County saw 7,721 roadway crashes that resulted in 105 deaths and another 7,498 injuries. In 2021, 8,155 crashes were reported that resulted in 105 fatalities and 7,595 injuries. Data from 2020 shows 7,327 total crashes resulting in 107 deaths and 6,363 injuries.
