FDOT has cancelled the project to consider a pedestrian crossing over the New River!
Vice Mayor Sorensen posted this on FaceBook this morning: FDOT was exploring the possibility of an expensive pedestrian bridge over the New River. I encouraged the City Commission to oppose it and to communicate our unanimous opposition to this proposal. We did, FDOT heard us and FDOT has withdrawn the project. Thank you FDOT!
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four is hosting a Public Meeting to learn about the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the New River Pedestrian Crossing project. A PD&E study is FDOT's process to evaluate the social, economic and environmental impacts associated with a planned transportation improvement project. The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate design concepts for a pedestrian /bicyclist crossing across the New River in the area of US 1/South Federal Highway.
