This study will involve a community-based evaluation to determine how best to meet the needs of current and future users, and to establish a long-term plan to guide evolution of the corridor that appropriately correlates the balance between land use and transportation planning. The result of the SR 580 Corridor Planning Study will include the development of a Corridor Development Plan, which will identify a range of multi-modal solutions to address the mobility needs within a context that reflects the long- term vision for the study corridor. The Corridor Development Plan will include short, mid and long-term implementation strategies that guide future development within the corridor, as well as specific improvements that can potentially be advanced in the near term though local agency participation and/or by FDOT. At the PAG Meeting, the study team will provide interactive roll plots for comments and input, an overview of the study process and project schedule.
