LABELLE, FL. -- The Florida Department of Transportation is hosting a Public Information Workshop as part of the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study for proposed improvements to State Road (SR) 29 from CR 80A (Cowboy Way) to CR 731 (Whidden Road) in Hendry and Glades Counties, Florida.
FDOT will hold the workshop from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 3, 2016 at the LaBelle Civic Center, 481 Highway 80 West (behind City Hall), LaBelle, Florida. The meeting will be in an informal, open house format. You may attend at any time during the open house to view project displays and speak with project team members. We will show a video slide show continuously during the workshop that will describe the project and the study process.
Please note the limits of this PD&E study have been shortened to only include the section of SR 29 from CR 80A (Cowboy Way) to Whidden Road. The study proposes adding two lanes to the existing SR 29 from County Road (CR) 80A (Cowboy Way) to CR 731 (Whidden Road) in Hendry and Glades Counties.
FDOT is sending this notice to all property owners whose property lies, in whole or in part, within 300 feet on either side of the center line of SR 29, Main Street and Bridge Street, from Cowboy Way to US 27 (even though they may not be directly affected). We encourage all interested people to attend and express their views regarding the project and information presented.
