The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a community meeting on Thursday in the city of Waldo about a proposed project that would impact travel along State Road 24.
An open house will start at 4:30 p.m. and take place at Waldo City Square, 14450 NE 148th Ave. The presentation and public comment period start at 6 p.m.
The proposed project would cut SR 24 (Waldo Road), starting west of NE 141st Drive to US 301, from two eastbound lanes to one, adding pedestrian crossings, a parking lane and bicycle lane. The changes would impact less than two miles of road and cost $23.4 million, according to FDOT documents.
“The City of Waldo expressed interest in providing a more bicycle and pedestrian friendly facility to encourage economic development in the area,” the project overview says. “This project proposes to repurpose SR 24 (Waldo Road) to serve all users: people who walk, bicycle or drive.”
A virtual meeting will also happen on Tuesday with an open house time at 5:30 p.m. and a presentation and public comment period starting at 6 p.m. Find more details for the online meeting at the FDOT website.
