Hendry County has scheduled a public information workshop regarding a
proposed bridge over the Caloosahatchee River to replace the Fort Denaud
Bridge in the future. The proposed project includes potential realignment
of CR 78 and possible widening up to the Glades County Line. There are
six possible alignments. The public information workshop will allow
interested persons the opportunity to express their views concerning
conceptual designs, social economic, and environmental effects of the
proposed improvements. The format of the meeting will be informal. Aerial
photographs, conceptual plans and project related information will be
available for public viewing. County representatives will be available
during the workshop to answer questions and discuss the project. Please
note that his is NOT a public hearing. A formal public hearing will be
held later in the study process in keeping with State requirements.
Persons with disabilities whom may need special accommodations at the
workshop under the American's Disability Act of 1990 should contact Mr.
Bill Davis at 863-675-5236 at least seven days before the workshop.
