These workshops will be held at the following locations on the following dates/times:

    The S.R. 50 PD&E Study is evaluating transportation improvements to the approximately 20 mile section of S.R. 50 from U.S. 301 to C.R. 33; the need for these improvements are based on roadway capacity, safety, and other factors. A PD&E study is a blending of engineering, environmental assessments, and public involvement activities and is the FDOT’s process to adhere to the National Environmental Policy Act requirements.

    The workshops, which will contain the same information at each event, will be conducted in an open house format. A PowerPoint presentation will run continuously throughout the workshops to describe the transportation improvements under consideration. Additionally, members of the study team will be available to answer questions and obtain input from attendees.
