Project Details
Work Type: Widening
Phase: PD&E
Limits: Approximately 0.8 miles, from South 1st Street to 17th Street
Length: 0.8 miles
Start of Current Phase: Mid 2019

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is conducting a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study to provide conceptual design, traffic engineering, environmental analysis and environmental documentation for improvements along US 17/92 (Hinson Avenue) from South 1st Street to 17th Street in Haines City, Polk County. The purpose of this project is to address the deficient capacity of US 17/92 within downtown Haines City. This in turn will alleviate existing congestion on the corridor and accommodate projected travel demand. Bicycle and pedestrian facilities will be evaluated as part of this improvement providing connection to community points of interest. Other goals of the project are to enhance safety conditions, mobility options, and to improve local transportation network connectivity.


The objective of this study is to evaluate alternatives that will address project Purpose and Need. Multiple alternatives have been developed for consideration, including Build and No-Build Alternatives. The project Build Alternatives consist of two phases, Interim and Ultimate. This phased approach expedites construction of interim operational improvements to meet local planning priorities. As the FDOT Work Program advances, the Ultimate Build Alternative, the widening of US 17/92 (Hinson Avenue) to a four-lane roadway between SR 17 (10th Street) and 17th Street, would be constructed once it is added to the FDOT Work Program
