This public hearing is conducted to afford affected property and business owners, interested persons and organizations the opportunity to provide comments to FDOT regarding the proposed median opening changes to S.R. 674 at the following locations:
· Proposed modification of the existing full median opening at East Del Webb Boulevard.
The existing median will become a directional median providing S.R. 674 eastbound traffic access to East Del Webb Boulevard by a left turn lane in the median. Motorists on East Del Webb Boulevard will no longer be able to directly access eastbound S.R. 674.
· The existing full median opening at El Rancho Drive/Stoneham Drive will now become a signalized intersection.
Other proposed improvements include extending the existing S.R. 674 westbound left turn lane at El Rancho Drive/Stoneham Drive, extending the existing sidewalks at East Del Webb Boulevard to the intersection, pedestrian sidewalk enhancements including pedestrian crosswalks and upgrading curbs to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
This public hearing is held pursuant to Chapters 120, 335.18 and 335.199, Florida Statutes. FDOT will receive verbal comments at each virtual hearing viewing location and on line from registered webinar participants. Written comments may also be submitted at each VPH viewing location. Written or emailed comments not received at the hearing must be postmarked or emailed by December 16, 2013, to become part of the official public hearing record.
