Widening of Colonial Parkway/ SR 50 is being planned by the Florida Department of Transportation. Traffic on parts of Colonial is expected to exceed 110,000 cars per day in 2045. Plans include new travel lanes and new limited access toll lanes for a total of ten lanes. The plans include a design to reduce congestion, add continuous sidewalks and multi-use trails, and improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.
A preferred alternative was presented at a public hearing that was held on September 26, 2019. Depictions of the preferred alternative are shown below. Design of the project is now underway and is expected to last through 2023.
