About the Project

Project phases
This project is a partnership between FDOT and Manatee County. FDOT is prepared the realignment study for this project. Manatee County is preparing the design plans, completing the right-of-way acquisition, and administering the construction for this project.

What is a public hearing?
A public hearing is a formal event where FDOT presents a selected alternative to the public for review and comment, called the 'preferred alternative'. The hearing also includes all analysis completed to date, as well as a comment period for the public's comments to be officially recorded for the project record. The public hearing was advertised through local media and notifications to property owners within the project area.

Did I have to attend an in-person event to submit a comment for the public hearing?
No. There were multiple ways for you to submit a comment during the hearing process. This website announced all hearing information and a copy of what was presented at the hearing can be found on the Documents and Publications page. There is also a summary of comments and responses received from the hearing.

Who is the current project contact?
Mike Sturm (michael.sturm@mymanatee.org) at Manatee County is the current project contact.
