Jefferson County, FL - September 14, 2012
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a Final Recommendations Public Meeting for the I-10 Interstate Master Plan for the section of the corridor from the Jackson/Gadsden County line east through Leon County to the Jefferson/Madison County line.
The meeting is Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. (EDT) at the First United Methodist Church of Monticello, 425 Walnut Street. A formal presentation will be made, followed by an open house style meeting.
The purpose of the meeting is to present to the public the final recommendation developed to address current and future needs of the I-10 corridor in the study area. After a brief presentation, FDOT and project staff will be available to discuss the project, answer questions, and address any concerns from the public.
The primary goal of the Interstate Master Plan is to develop an integrated transportation system that is economically efficient, environmentally sound, and moves people and goods in an energy-efficient manner. To that end, the plan will identify and recommend mobility enhancement alternatives that serve high speed, high volume travel, including long trips and regional commerce, as well as outline a process of protecting the right-of-way necessary to accommodate future needs.
The public’s continued involvement in the planning effort will help shape I-10 in this part of the state for future decades.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Ray Kirkland, FDOT Project Manager toll-free at (888) 638-0250, extension 590 at least seven days prior to the meeting.
