I-75 at Bee Ridge Interchange Improvements
District: One
Meeting Type: Hearing
Date: Tuesday, July 26, 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 meeting 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 meeting on May 19, 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.
In December 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. FDOT will widen Bee Ridge Road from four to six lanes in each direction and will add 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 a secondary 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 to a six lane highway and widening of about one mile of Bee Ridge Road from west of Maxfield Drive to west of Mauna Loa Boulevard.
The public meeting will be: 
Date:               Thursday, May 19, 2016
Time:              5 p.m. open house
Location:       Realtor Association of Sarasota and Manatee
                        2320 Cattlemen Road

FDOT is holding this Hearing to present project progress to date and to obtain comments on the revisions to the design plans made in response to comments heard at public meetings held in December 2015, February 2016, and May 2016. FDOT representatives will be available beginning at 5 p.m. to answer questions, review proposed design plans and project-related materials that will be on display, and discuss the project informally. A formal public hearing will begin at 6 p.m.. 
Written comments can be submitted at the Hearing, 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 Friday, August 5, 2016 to become part of the public record.
