The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is hosting a public hearing regarding proposed safety improvements at the intersection of US 17 at NE Livingston Street in Arcadia, DeSoto County. Project improvements include converting the existing full median opening to a dual directional opening that allows northbound traffic on US 17 to make a left turn onto NE Livingston Avenue and southbound traffic on US 17 to turn left onto NE Livingston Street.
The hearing will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 5, 2019, at the Turner Agri-Civic Center, 2250 NE Roan Street, Arcadia, FL 34266.
There will be an open house at 5:00 p.m. during which staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions, followed by a formal presentation at 6:00 p.m., after which participants may provide their verbal comments to all present. Participants may also provide verbal comments directly to a court reporter before and after the formal presentation. People attending the hearing will have the opportunity to review project displays and speak one-on-one with project team members about the proposed safety improvements.
