New Walmart Supercenter access, additional traffic signal coming soon

Beacon Woods Drive Safety Improvement Project Progress

As part of an ongoing safety improvement project in the area, a new Beacon Woods Drive roundabout will soon provide drivers access to the Hudson Walmart Supercenter without traveling on U.S. Highway 19.  The roundabout is one of several improvements funded by a public-private initiative that Pasco County, Walmart, and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) are constructing to provide safer access to the busy store, nearby intersection, and surrounding communities.

Beacon Woods Drive Safety Improvement Project Details:

  • Reconditioning of Dipaola Drive
  • Additional north/south driveway connections to Walmart
  • Limited, right-turn access to Walmart from Beacon Woods Dr. set to begin 10/28/20
  • Full roundabout access to Walmart from Beacon Woods scheduled for 11/25/20
  • New traffic signal on U.S. 19 at Beach Boulevard/Dipaola Drive anticipated Spring 2021
