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.   

What’s underway in Wimauma right now is the soon-to-open Wawa and the SouthShore Bay lagoon community that began late 2016. The new neighborhood will add around 2500 homes to the area.

The lagoon will be around 7 acres built by Crystal Lagoons. This is the same company managing the construction of Epperson, the lagoon development in Wesley Chapel that will mark the first in the United States.
