The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, will hold a public informational meeting for Cow Camp Road Bridge over the Rosalie/Zipprer Canal.
Informational meeting will be held on:
Date: Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Time: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Lake Kissimmee State Park
Large Pavilion by the boat ramp
14248 Camp Mack Road
Lake Wales, Florida 33898
The meeting will be an open house format and the bridge design alternatives will be on display. There will be no formal presentation. This informational meeting offers people the opportunity to express their views about the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of constructing a new Cow Camp Road Bridge. The study limits include 1,000 feet along Cow Camp Road and includes the Rosalie/Zipprer Canal. FDOT representatives will be available to answer individual questions and receive written comments.
FDOT is studying bridge improvements to the Cow Camp Road Bridge over the Rosalie/Zipprer Canal located within the Lake Kissimmee State Park, Polk County. The proposed improvements include the replacement of the existing 104-foot long wooden bridge with a two lane structure that will meet current criteria. Due to multiple factors, including its age and limited width, the bridge is functionally obsolete and does not accommodate larger vehicles including emergency response vehicles. As a result, FDOT is considering replacement alternatives. This informational meeting will present to the public and officials the bridge design alternatives for the project.
