Volusia County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Five, invites you to an access management public hearing concerning the State Road (SR) 40 design projects in Volusia County.
The hearing will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at the Salty Church, Oasis Campus, located at 85 South Tymber Creek Road in Ormond Beach, Florida 32174. This hearing is being held to afford interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the proposed access management improvement which involves widening SR 40 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway including a 40-foot-wide grassed median. The hearing will begin with an informal open house at 5:30 p.m. followed by a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. The hearing will end at 7:30 p.m.
The limits of the design projects are from United States Highway (US) 17 to Cone Road, a distance of approximately 14 miles. The design proposes to widen SR 40 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway in order to improve safety and mobility. The projects also include drainage improvements, wildlife crossings, and median modifications. Construction of a raised median is expected to change access to businesses and homes throughout this corridor.
