Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay residents are going to have to deal with temporary lane and sidewalk closures on U.S. 1 during a three-part road maintenance project slated to start May 2012 and end a year later. This will cause short term inconveniences for long term gains.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is designing construction plans for improvements to Pinecrest Parkway (US 1) from 136 Street to 102 Street. FDOT is conducting this public meeting to offer the public an opportunity to review the project design and ask questions.
The first part of the project includes repaving U.S. 1 from 102nd to 136th Street, installing push-button and countdown signals at pedestrian crosswalks, repairing damaged sidewalks, installing drainage inlets and restriping the roadway to provide a wide outside lane to be shared with bicyclists.
The Palmetto Bay section is the third part of the project which is presently slated to commence in July 2012. This project will run from SW 136 to 168 Street. It will include the same items as the first part, plus providing new railings for two bridges – one at Southwest 139th Street and the other north of 160th Street.
