Thank you for visiting the SR 299 Improvements Project (from Catherine Street to SR 1) website. This project will widen the roadway corridor, improve traffic capacity and operations, add pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and improve safety.
We will complete the project in nine phases to maintain access and safety throughout the corridor. Visit this website for regular updates regarding the current and upcoming phases. We are currently working in Phase 1,2, & 4, please see below for more information.
