SOUTHSHORE / SUN CITY CENTER, FL – Sun City Center Blvd (SR-674) has picked up some traffic over the years along with longer wait times at stop lights.

I noticed around 1:00 pm, a day after publishing this page, I was in a line of cars backed up past Taco Bell waiting for the light at 674 and Kings Boulevard. Google calculates this distance around 9/10s of a mile. Surprisingly, the wait time was not that bad really; especially if you have a good song playing on the radio.

The video below features traffic at the U.S. Post Office in Sun City Center Plaza and at different locations along SR-674. The video is meant more for entertainment but does read ‘Caution’ when visiting our Post Office.

The county plans to widened SR-674 starting with Wimauma from US-301 to CR-579. The Sun City Center section of 674 will be widened years later.    Continue reading “Traffic in Sun City Center, FL (SR-674)”
