FDOT hosts meeting to discuss SR 600 improvements in Kissimmee
Osceola County -- The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) invites your participation, and welcomes your comments on the proposed improvements on State Road (SR) 600/US 17-92, at a Public Information Meeting, 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at New Hope Bible Church, 1730 Vintage Street, Kissimmee, FL 32746.
The meeting will be an open-house format, in which representatives from FDOT and the engineering consultant firm designing construction will be available to talk about the project and answer questions. The meeting adjourns at 7:30 p.m.
The project limits are from west of Poinciana Boulevard to County Road 535 (Ham Brown Road), approximately 2.25 miles.
The project will involve reconstructing and widening SR 600 (US 17/92) from the existing two lanes to a four-lane divided roadway that includes 4-foot buffered bike lanes in the pavement, and 5-foot pedestrian sidewalk on both sides of the right-of-way. Signalization improvements will be made at Poinciana Boulevard and Ham Brown road and lighting will be provided for the length of the project corridor. Directional and full median openings will be provided in select locations and dual left turns will be provided from the northbound and southbound lanes at the Poinciana Boulevard intersection. A series of ditches and underground pipe systems will be constructed to convey storm water runoff to three storm water management ponds that will be constructed within FDOT owned right-of-way.
This project is currently funded for construction in FDOT’s Work Program in Fiscal Year 2018.
