FDOT is designing improvements to rehabilitate the asphalt pavement to extend the longevity of the roadway. The project will mill and resurface the roadway and design roadside improvements as needed, such as Americans with Disability Act (ADA) improvements, bike lane keyholes at certain locations, and minor drainage improvements. The design of a shared use path is also included along a portion of the project corridor. No additional right of way will be required. The project is funded for construction.
The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the project and present the preliminary design concepts to the public. The meeting is an open house beginning at 5:30 p.m. Staff members will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. A brief looping presentation and other project information will be available throughout the evening. The meeting ends at 7:30 p.m.
