Sumter County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an Alternatives Public Meeting for the U.S. 301 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. We will present design alternatives to widen US 301 from a two-lane roadway to a four-lane roadway, to realign a portion of US 301 south of the City of Coleman, and, to reconstruct the Florida’s Turnpike interchange at U.S. 301. The study limits extend from County Road (C.R) 470 E to State Road 44, a distance of approximately eight miles.

The meeting is Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at Trinity Baptist Church – Fellowship Hall, 3305 E C.R. 468, Wildwood, FL 34785.  It will be an open house from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Attendees can watch a video presentation that will be running on a continuous loop, review study information, and discuss the design alternatives with the study team. This meeting provides interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the social, economic and environmental impacts of the proposed design alternatives. The information that will be presented at this meeting will also be available on the study website,
