The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is hosting an alternatives public meeting as part of the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study of a new overpass to carry State Road 655 (Recker Highway) over the CSX railroad in Auburndale. The study limits are Recker Highway from east of Barton Park Road to US 92 and Thornhill Road from Recker Highway to one-half mile south of Recker Highway.
The public meeting is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at Auburndale Civic Center, 115 West Park Street in Auburndale. The meeting offers people the opportunity to express their views about the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of constructing a Recker Highway overpass.
FDOT will display information about construction of a new overpass and will show a video explaining the alternatives that will play continuously. The meeting will be an open house format where people can ask questions and provide comments to FDOT representatives in a one-on-one setting. Written comments will be accepted.
