Starke Railroad Overpass Public Alternatives Meeting
District: Two
Meeting Type: Open House
Date: Monday, August 17, 2015
Time: 4:30 pm to N/A
Location Name: Bradford County Fair Association
Street Address: , Building 1, 2300 N. Temple Avenue
City: Starke
Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation is hosting a Public Alternatives Meeting regarding a possible railroad overpass in Starke. The meeting is scheduled for August 17, 2015 at the Bradford County Fair Association, Building 1, 2300 N. Temple Avenue, Starke, FL 32091. The meeting begins with an Open House from 4:30—6:30 p.m. to provide an opportunity to view  displays and discuss the project with FDOT staff. A public        comment period will follow the Open House.

The Department is conducting a Project Development and          Environment Study for a possible railroad overpass in Starke. The City of Starke is divided by the CSX railroad that runs parallel to US 301, and although there are numerous locations to cross the tracks, there are no raised crossings over the railroad in Starke.  Additionally, there are approximately 29 trains per day that utilize the tracks. As a result, emergency vehicles and other motorists,  experience longer than average wait times throughout the day. With expectations of an increase in trains per day, an overpass would improve emergency response times and allow traffic to flow more freely. The goal of the study is to identify a suitable location within Starke. This meeting is an opportunity for interested persons to  express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed improvements.
Public participation is sought without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Stephen Browning at the number provided at least 7 days before the meeting.
