The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will have a public hearing about safety improvements on State Road 464/SE Maricamp Road at SE 53rd Avenue/Rotary Sportsplex, in Marion County.
The project will discuss changing the full median opening at SE 53rd Avenue to a directional median. This modification will improve safety by reducing conflict points—too many conflict points can increase the probability of vehicle crashes and injury.
The public hearing will be 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at the Marion County Growth Services Training Room, 2710 E. Silver Springs Boulevard, Ocala, FL 34470. There will be an open house at 5 p.m. during which staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions, followed by the formal hearing presentation at 6 p.m., after which participants may provide their verbal comments to all present.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status. Persons wishing to express their concerns relative to FDOT compliance with Title VI may do so by contacting Jennifer Smith, FDOT District Five Title VI Coordinator by phone at 386- 943-5367, or via email at [email protected].
