Combee Road Project Development and Environment Study Hybrid Public Hearing
District: One
Meeting Type: Hearing
Date: Thursday, November 18, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Location Name: In-person at Somos Church or online at swflroads.com/sr659/us98toncrystallakedr/
Street Address: 3125 US Hwy. 98 S
City: Lakeland
Purpose: The purpose of this PD&E study is to identify and evaluate potential impacts that may result from improving Combee Road from US 98 to North Crystal Lake Drive. FDOT recommends reconstructing Combee Road with a 13-foot-wide two-way left turn lane, one 12-foot-wide travel lane in each direction, and an 8-foot-wide sidewalk on both sides. Roundabouts are proposed at the intersections of Maine Avenue and Skyview Drive. The proposed improvements would require FDOT to acquire right-of-way to accommodate intersection improvements at US 98, Maine Avenue, Commerce Point Drive, and Skyview Drive. No residential or business relocations are proposed. Near the intersections of US 98, Maine Avenue, Commerce Point Drive, Industrial Park Drive, South Crystal Lake Drive, and Skyview Drive, existing access to properties along Combee Road would change due to the addition of a traffic separator. These traffic separators are necessary for improving safety. FDOT is proposing to use the existing pond within Crystal Lake Park for stormwater needs. This pond may need to be expanded but no permanent impacts to the existing boardwalk or boat ramp are proposed. As part of the project development process and in accordance with Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966, FDOT is seeking comments concerning the effects of the project on park activities, features, and attributes. The public hearing is being held to present information about the preferred alternative and engineering and environmental analysis completed to date. The hearing provides the opportunity for the public to offer feedback on the preferred alternative for the official hearing record.
