What’s New?

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) completed a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Re-evaluation Study for proposed improvements to US 19 (SR 55) from 66th Avenue North to SR 690 / 118th Avenue North in Pinellas County. This project is a re-evaluation of a PD&E study originally completed in 1990. Re-evaluations verify that the study results are in compliance with applicable Federal and State laws before moving into a production phase for the area. This re-evaluation serves as a check on the commitments made by FDOT during the original study process. The re-evaluation documents compliance with Federal laws and any changes that may have occurred since the approval of the original final recommendations.
