I-75 at Bee Ridge Interchange Improvements
District: One
Meeting Type: Workshop
Date: Thursday, February 11, 2016
Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Location Name: Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee
Street Address: 2320 Cattlemen Road
City: Sarasota
Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, will conduct a public workshop regarding proposed changes to design plans for improvements to Interstate 75 (I-75) from south of Bee Ridge Road to south of Fruitville Road in Sarasota County. FDOT is holding this hearing on February 11, 2016 to allow interested persons the opportunity to provide comments concerning changes to the proposed design plans at the I-75/Bee Ridge Road interchange. FDOT will notify all property owners and tenants located within at least 300 feet on either side of the design project right-of-way and to other public officials, regulatory agencies, organizations, and individuals interested in the project (see attached notification).
In 2011, the Federal Highway Administration approved a preferred alternative from the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study of I-75 from south of SR 681 to north of University Parkway in Sarasota and Manatee counties. At the I-75/Bee Ridge Road interchange, the preferred alternative maintained the existing partial cloverleaf interchange but added turn lanes on the northbound and southbound I-75 off-ramps. The preferred alternative also included widening of Bee Ridge Road from four to six lanes in each direction and the adding turn lanes at the Bee Ridge Road/Cattlemen Road intersection.
During the design phase, traffic simulations indicated that the preferred alternative would result in excessive delay and queuing. To address this issue, FDOT developed a modified design proposal that includes reconstructing I-75 at the Bee Ridge Road interchange from the existing diamond configuration to a hybrid diverging diamond interchange (DDI) and southbound diversion ramp. FDOT would also rebuild the Bee Ridge Road/Cattlemen Road intersection to a continuous flow intersection (CFI). The hybrid DDI, southbound diversion ramp, and CFI work in conjunction to accommodate the traffic at the I-75/Bee Ridge Road interchange and the Bee Ridge Road/Cattlemen Road intersection, which are in very close proximity to each other. The proposed design plans continue to include widening of I-75 from south of Bee Ridge Road to south of Fruitville Road and widening of about one mile of Bee Ridge Road.
The public hearing will be:
Date:    Thursday, February 11, 2016
Time:   5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee
                   2320 Cattlemen Road
                   Sarasota, FL 34232
FDOT representatives will be available at the public workshop beginning at 5 p.m. to answer questions, review proposed design plans and project-related materials on display, and discuss the project informally. Written comments can be submitted at the workshop, mailed to Kevin Ingle, FDOT Project Manager, at 801 N. Broadway Ave, Bartow, FL 33831 or by email at kevin.ingle@dot.state.fl.us. All comments must be postmarked by Monday, February 22, 2016 to become part of the public record.

US 1 and Ocean Boulevard Intersection Public Hearing
District: Two
Meeting Type: Hearing
Date: Thursday, February 18, 2016
Time: 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Location Name: FDOT St. Augustine Maintenance Office
Street Address: 3600 DOT Road
City: St. Augustine
Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District 2, will conduct an Access Management Public Hearing on a proposed median modification at the intersection of US 1 and Ocean Boulevard in St. Johns County, FL. The meeting will be held Thursday, February 18, 2016 at FDOT St. Augustine Maintenance Office  located at 3600 DOT Road, St. Augustine, FL 32095. The meeting will be an Open House format between 4:30-6 p.m. Drop by any time to review project displays and talk with Department staff. Following the Open House, the meeting will open for public comments. There is no presentation.
 
For safety purposes, FDOT proposes to eliminate left turn movements from Ocean Boulevard westbound onto US 1 southbound by modifying the median opening. Based on crash data since January of  2014, the number of left turn crashes has increased from two per year to ten per year. This type of crash could be prevented by requiring motorists to make a right turn onto US 1 northbound, and then make a U-turn at the median opening at the Jackson Boulevard intersection. Local motorists may also choose to use local roads to access Jackson Boulevard and turn left onto US 1 southbound.
 
This hearing is being held to give interested persons an    opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed improvements.
 
Persons who wish to submit written statements may do so at the hearing or send them to the project contact listed below postmarked on or before February 28, 2016 to be included in the official transcript for this project.
 
As of January 27, 2016, project documents will be available for your review during normal business hours at the FDOT St. Augustine Maintenance Office located at 3600 DOT Road, St. Augustine, FL 32095.
