Welcome

map of bradentonThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District One has kicked off the much anticipated Bradenton-Palmetto Connector Alternative Corridor Evaluation (ACE) Study. This ACE study will evaluate feasible corridor alternatives to connect the Cities of Bradenton and Palmetto across the Manatee River and improve regional multimodal mobility, connectivity, and safety for all users, including motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, trucks and transit.

The need for improved access across the Manatee River was identified as part of the Central Manatee Network Alternatives Analysis (CMNAA) Study in Manatee County, which was a collaboration between FDOT, Manatee County, the Cities of Bradenton and Palmetto, and the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). Following the ACE Study, FDOT District One will evaluate the most feasible project corridors as part of a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study.
