Chipley– The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public information meeting concerning the U.S. 331 Project Development and Environment study for the northern portion (residents from the Liberty area to the Alabama state line) Thursday, January 18, 2018, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CST at the Paxton Agricultural Center, 22036 U.S. 331 North, Paxton.
Current and projected traffic forecasts indicate the level of service does not meet FDOT criteria to widen the roadway. Therefore, no capacity improvements are necessary at this time to accommodate the forecasted 2040 peak hour volumes from Coy Burgess Loop Road to the Alabama state line. Operational and safety improvements are being evaluated. In Paxton, improvements include installing rectangular rapid flashing beacons and upgrading the school zone signage at the existing crosswalk.
The meeting will be held in an open-house format. Maps, drawings, and other information regarding the improvements only in Paxton will be on display. FDOT representatives will be available to discuss proposed improvements, answer questions, and receive comments.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Peggy Kelley, FDOT Project Manager, toll-free at (888) 638-0250, extension 1517 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org at least seven days prior to the meeting.
