    Project Description: Evaluate a multi-use trail along State Road (S.R.) 19 from County Road (C.R.) 450 (Bulldog Lane) to S.R. 40 and the planned Black Bear Scenic Trail.

    The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a corridor planning study to assess alternative alignments for a multi-use trail from County Road (C.R.) 450 in the City of Umatilla to State Road (S.R.) 40, approximately 19 miles. The corridor is anticipated to follow adjacent to some or all of S.R. 19, though potential alternative paths, including but not limited to corridors along, C.R. 445 and C.R. 445A, are also being evaluated and considered.

    At this third Project Visioning Team (PVT) meeting, the project team will provide a brief overview of the results of the public meeting (informational open house) held on January 24, 2019, review the two alternatives under consideration and discuss the next steps for the study.

    The PVT is an advisory group (not an independent decision-making board) that will assist the FDOT and the consultant team by providing jurisdictional, policy, technical, and administrative guidance throughout the project. Your interest in this study is truly valued and appreciated. This is a working meeting with the FDOT staff and PVT members, which is open to public attendance. Comment cards will be provided for any questions and comments regarding this study by the public, otherwise the public may contact the study team before or after the meeting.
