City: Coleman
Purpose:
Sumter County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has scheduled a Public Kickoff Meeting for the I-75 at County Road (C.R.) 514 Interchange from 0.5 Miles West of I-75 to C.R. 525 Extension PD&E Study in Sumter County. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential impacts of a new interchange near the I-75/C.R. 514 (Warm Springs Avenue) overpass to the natural, physical, and human environments.
 
The purpose of this project is to improve the existing transportation network and support regional travel demand by providing additional access to I-75 at C.R. 514. The existing transportation network facilities in the project and surrounding area will be unable to support future demand associated with the planned Florida Crossroads Industrial Activity Center and residential development expanding from the north and east toward the project area. An additional access to I-75 is expected to provide relief to the surrounding transportation network and meet anticipated growth and future travel demand.
 
The Public Kickoff Meeting will be held on Thursday, November 2, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the City of Coleman Community Center, 1204 N. Church Street, Coleman, FL 33521.  This meeting will be held in an informal, open-house format and is an opportunity to introduce the project and study process, present information regarding existing conditions, and receive initial feedback.
 
The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for these projects are being, or have been, carried out by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) pursuant to 23 U.S.C. 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated December 14, 2016 and executed by the Federal Highway Administration and FDOT.
