Stage 1 from Hillcrest Drive (East) to STH 33 and Stage 2 from STH 175 to Hillcrest Drive (East). Michels Corporation was going to grading, asphalt, curb and gutter, sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, culvert pipes, acceleration/deceleration and bypass lanes, and sight line improvements.

The project has hit a number of snags over the past few months with quite a few watermain breaks and unexpected delays including an incident March 12, 2021 when contractors put in a manhole assembly on Railroad Street and the a sidewall give way. Witnesses said a huge geyser shot up as a pipe was pulled completely out of the valve assembly. The incident emptied the 350,000 gallons in the water tower as the hole on Railroad Street filled with water coming in a 115-pounds of pressure.
