About

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 to the year 2040 as a result of area-wide growth. 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.

US 17/92 (Hinson Avenue) is an east-west oriented, two- and four- lane, undivided roadway. Surrounding land use is predominantly commercial development in downtown Haines City. Major deficiencies within the study area generally include sub-standard Level of Service (LOS), disjointed sidewalks/bicycle facilities and insufficient or nonexistent lighting throughout the project. The primary objective of this effort is to create a more complete corridor along US 17/92 and improve localized and regional traffic flow.
