PD&E Studies | FDOT District Four I-75 PD&E Study from North of the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike (HEFT) to the I-595 Interchange

The Purpose:

The I-75 PD&E Study from North of the HEFT to the I-595 Interchange is being conducted to plan for projects to relieve existing and future congestion by providing additional capacity and transportation modes along the existing I-75 corridor.

The Project:

The project is located in northwestern Miami-Dade County and southwestern Broward County and is approximately 22 miles in length. The alternatives will include the possible addition of auxiliary and express (special use) lanes in the median, noise barriers, interchange improvements, and a dedicated transitway adjacent to the highway with stations at appropriate intervals. These improvements are needed to address future growth and development projected in the region, enhance hurricane and other emergency evacuation, and improve system connectivity between I-75, SR 826 (Palmetto Expressway), Gratigny Parkway, Florida’s Turnpike, I-595 and the Sawgrass Expressway.

The Public:

Media Relations Group, LLC, serves as the main liaison between project team members and the community for this study. Together with FDOT, MRG has embarked on an extensive public involvement program that began in mid-2007 and will continue throughout the life of the study. We have been responsible for scheduling and attending more than 40 briefings with Broward County and municipal elected officials and agencies in order to share important project information and updates as well as for coordinating and staffing eight successful public meetings to date, including a Public Hearing on June 14, 2011. MRG completed the Public Involvement Plan for this project and generated all meeting materials necessary. MRG also created the project logo and website, www.I-75Vision.com, and continue to receive comments and input from affected stakeholders in a variety of ways in order to ensure that every member of the community has an opportunity to voice their questions and concerns.
