NORTH PORT, FL - The last phase of widening on Sumter Blvd in North Port is now scheduled.
Earlier this year, North Port received a state infrastructure loan worth $10 million to repair and widen the roadway, which currently goes from four lanes, down to two lanes, and back to four lanes.
In addition to the widening, a beautification and repair project are also in the works. Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.
The $10 million project should start in in October or November. It has taken 10 years for the project to get done.
