Over the last two years, FCDOT has held two rounds of community input meetings to gather feedback from residents and worked to identify deficiencies and future needs along the Parkway corridors. The goals of the study include creating a more efficient option for commuters while serving local residents, minimizing impacts to property owners and the environment, and exploring options for the corridors.
The study team will once again gather feedback and develop and evaluate final recommendations in its transportation models to ensure that the recommended improvements address future demand and commuter needs. FCDOT will present the final recommendations to the Board of Supervisors this winter. Once the Board of Supervisors have endorsed the Study, FCDOT will begin the process of amending the Comprehensive Plan in Spring 2021.
FCDOT will prioritize recommendations from the study to show what may be implemented in the near future or over a longer (10-50 year) horizon, as funding allows.
