US 92 PD&E Public Hearing
District: One
Meeting Type: Hearing
Date: Thursday, April 13, 2017
Time: 5:00 pm to N/A
Location Name: The Lakeland Center - Hollingworth Ballroom
Street Address: 701 West Lime Street
City: Lakeland
Purpose:
FDOT proposes to widen US 92 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a four-lane divided roadway. The project is approximately four miles in length. The widening will require right-of-way acquisition for road improvements and storm water management areas. Existing access to properties along US 92 will change due to the addition of a median, a result of widening the road. The no-build alternative, where no improvements other than routine maintenance are made to US 92 through 2040, will remain viable throughout the remainder of this study.
 
The hearing begins with an open house at 5 p.m. and follows with a formal presentation and public comment period at 6 p.m. Please use Gate 6 to park in the Red Lot behind the Jenkins Arena and inform the gate staff that you are attending the public hearing. The closest building entrance to the hearing is Entrance 2. People attending the hearing can review project displays and speak one-on-one with project team members. Written statements or exhibits submitted at the hearing, emailed, or mailed and postmarked by April 24, 2017, will become part of the official hearing transcript.
 
Project information and graphics showing the project’s location and proposed improvements will be available for public viewing from March 23, 2017 to April 24, 2017 at two locations. One is the Lakeland Public Library, 100 Lake Morton Drive in Lakeland, Florida. Please call the library at (863) 834-4280 for hours of operation. The other location is the FDOT District One Headquarters, 801 North Broadway Avenue, Bartow, Florida.
