FDOT will host an Alternate U.S. 19 Corridor Workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Hale Senior Activity Center.

Over the past 18-plus months, FDOT, in conjunction with Forward Pinellas, has collected technical data and user comments on how Alternate U.S. 19 functions. Now, the project teams will present their draft improvement concepts for review and input.

The teams will present short- and long-term alternatives for improving the Alternate US 19 Corridor from Park Street North to the Pasco County Line. The workshop will be in an open house format with an introductory video available to educate attendees about the project and next steps.

Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension

​Collier County Project

The Vanderbilt Beach Road Extension is designed to be a 6 lane divided road system with a planted median.  The County has hired a contractor and is in the design phase of the project which was put on hold in 2008.  Plans originally called for bringing Vanderbilt Beach Road to Desoto Boulevard, the western edge of the Estates.  Based on the most recent plans, it is likely that Phase 1 of the project will end at 16th Street.  If the design is finished and all permits are in place by 2019, the County will select a firm to build the road by 2020.

Collier County has funded $86,670,000 for design, right-of-way acquisition and construction in their FY 2018-2022 budget.   Acquisition activities will begin in early 2019.
