Public Hearing by FDOT on 6th Avenue Interchange

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four has initiated a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the Interstate 95 (I-95) Interchange at 6th Avenue South in the City of Lake Worth. The project limits are from north of 12th Avenue South to south of Lake Worth Road along I-95 and from Michigan Avenue to South C Street along 6th Avenue South in Palm Beach County.

The purpose of this study is to identify short-term and long-term needs and develop design concepts to address traffic spillback onto I-95, improve interchange operations, reduce congestion, and increase safety at the study interchange. The proposed improvements will address pedestrian and bicycle modes and will ensure that the project corridor continues to meet mobility and safety goals as travel demand continues to grow.

The hearing will be held on Thursday, August 3 at 5:30 pm at the gymnasium located at The Club Managers Association of America Therapeutic Complex at 2728 Lake Worth Road. I was at their last meeting in September 2016 where we were told that plan implementation, costing anywhere from $9 million to $11 million, is needed to support the growth projected in year 2040.One plan involved eminent domain on property on the south side of 6th Avenue South.

As I have another meeting that night, I am hoping some of you from this area will attend.
