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.

I-295 at US 17
District: Two
Meeting Type: Meeting
Date: Monday, February 29, 2016
Time: 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm
Location Name: Orange Park Town Hall
Street Address: 2042 Park Avenue
City: Orange Park, FL 32073
Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation is conducting a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study for proposed widening and reconstruction of US 17 (SR 15) from south of the Wells Road Intersection to Birmingham Avenue, a distance of 3 miles, in Clay and Duval Counties.  Additional improvements include ramp and intersection improvements at US 17 and the I-295 off ramps, Eldridge Avenue, Old Orange Park Road, and Wells Road.
 
Traffic operations within the project study area show excessive delay and heavy queuing at the intersections along US 17 during peak hours as well as at the on and off ramps to I-295.  With expectations of continued traffic operation issues, this PD&E study is investigating alternatives to meet capacity needs, intersection operations, and safety within the study area.
