FDOT schedules public meetings on 5-year transportation plan

Live Oak — A $3.2 billion work program of projects proposed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for the Northeast Florida area over the next five years will be discussed at two public meetings this Thursday (Dec. 5) and next Monday (Dec. 9).

Thursday’s meeting will be an informal open house between 2-6 p.m. at the FDOT District Office located at 1109 South Marion Avenue in Lake City. The focus of this meeting are projects in the counties of Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union.

Monday’s meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will include a presentation on proposed projects in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties. This meeting is at the FDOT Training Center located at 2198 Edison Avenue (off I-10 and Stockton Street).

Information for all 18 counties served by FDOT District 2 will be available at both meetings. FDOT staff will be available to discuss projects and answer questions.

Each year, the FDOT must update its five-year transportation plan with projects requested by the public, local government, metropolitan planning organizations and resurfacing criteria. The results will be presented to the Florida Legislature for budget approval in 2014.  

Each county’s tentative transportation plan is available at the FDOT web site:

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, disability or family status.
