The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study Re-evaluation for proposed improvements to SR 29 from CR 80A (Cowboy Way) to north of CR 731 (Whidden Rd) in Hendry County. These improvements are intended to improve traffic operations, access, and mobility along SR 29. FDOT anticipates this project will also enhance safety along the project corridor; improve emergency evacuation; and improve access between Hendry and Glades Counties. The project will widen sidewalks along the corridor and look at improvements at the intersections of SR 29 and Cowboy Way, SR 80 at Main Street and Bridge Street, and Park Avenue at Main Street and Bridge Street. The no-build alternative, where no improvements other than routine maintenance are made to SR 29, will remain viable throughout the remainder of this study.
FDOT held a public workshop, with a live in person event on Wednesday, November 30, 2022 and a live online event on Thursday, December 1, 2022. Materials were also available for review and comment below from Wednesday, November 23, 2022. And comments for the workshop were accepted in multiple ways through Saturday, December 10, 2022. To view what was presented at the workshop, see the Project Documents section below.
