The project is located along SR 776 between the Myakka River Bridge and Willowbend Drive in unincorporated northwestern Charlotte County. The approximately 1.7-mile project corridor will consist of milling and resurfacing the pavement to extend the life of the existing roadway.
Due to the high rate of crashes at the intersection of SR 776 and Sturkie Ave., the present median opening will be converted to a directional median opening with a left turn lane in both the northbound and southbound directions. This will prevent the left-out movements from Sturkie Ave. and Pambar Ave. onto SR 776. The median at Pambar Ave., will be closed, and the side street will have right in/right out access.
Additional project elements include ADA improvements and replacing existing signage and damaged drainage structures. All improvements will occur within the existing right-of-way.
Public involvement is an integral part of the SR 776 from the Myakka River to East of Willowbend Drive project. FDOT uses various activities to engage interested parties in the project process and there will be an opportunity for public comment during a hybrid public meeting. Please review the May 2022 Project Newsletter below for additional meeting details. This meeting will assist the project team with identifying concerns and opportunities throughout the project corridor. Remember that you may also submit comments or questions about this project at any time by sending an email directly to the FDOT Project Manager, David Agacinski at David.Agacinski@dot.state.fl.us.
