US 441 has been a top priority of the MPO since the creation of the agency. The Planning Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for US 441 was completed in the spring of 2003. US 441 is a regionally significant corridor due primarily to the urban activity along the corridor from Marion County to Orange County. The corridor was improved in the center of Lake County expanding to the north and to the south. Improvements are complete from Dixie Avenue (SR 44) in Leesburg to SR 44 in Mount Dora. Construction of the intersection of US 441 and US 27 (Perkins Street to north of Griffin Road) is almost complete; ROW acquisition is underway for Mills Street to Perkins Street. From Leesburg north, US 441 is joined by US 27. Construction is underway from Martin Luther King, Jr., Boulevard to Lake Ella Road in Fruitland Park. The final segment north, which is pending construction programming, is from Lake Ella Road to Avenida Central in Lady Lake. The segment in Sumter County from Buenos Aires to the Marion County line has recently been improved by adding continuous right turn lanes for a total of six lanes. The south end of US 441 from SR 44 to SR 46 is under study phase with design in 2013/14 as the associated Wekiva Parkway project proceeds.
