The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District Four, will conduct an Alternatives Public Workshop for the I-95 Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study on Thursday, Sept. 13, at 5:30 p.m. This workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn PGA Village, Persimmon Room, located at 8540 Commerce Centre Drive in Port St. Lucie.
In the event that the workshop cannot be held on Sept. 13, due to severe weather or unforeseen conditions, it will be held on the alternate date of Oct. 11 at the same time and place.
The Alternatives Public Workshop will be an open-house forum where all viable alternatives that have been developed will be on display. The goal of the workshop is to collect and evaluate the public’s comments before selecting a preferred alternative. An invitation to the workshop is being sent to all property owners located within a minimum of 300 feet from the project study area, other public officials, organizations and individuals interested in the project.
The primary purpose for this project is to provide additional capacity to meet existing and future traffic needs as well as improve safety. The additional capacity will also improve emergency access and enhance hurricane evacuation along the project corridor. The project development analysis includes all structures, ramps, mainline, cross road and interchange improvements required to add through lanes to I-95 and to ensure adequate future project safety, capacity and compliance with all federal and state laws.
A detailed FDOT project website with a map of the project area contains additional information. Citizen attendance and participation in the public workshop is encouraged.
