S.R. 951 project: Public information meeting slated

The Collier County Growth Management Division, in coordination with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), is hosting a public information meeting regarding the 60 percent design plans phase of the project to resurface, restore and rehabilitate S.R. 951 from south of Fiddler’s Creek Parkway to south of U.S. 41, for approximately three miles.

The informal, open house style meeting will be held on Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m., Tuesday at Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, 300 Tower Road, Naples. There will not be a formal presentation.

Residents, visitors and business representatives may attend at any time during the 5 to 7 p.m. time frame of the meeting to review project displays, currently at the 60 percent design phase, and to talk one-on-one with the project team members. Public input is encouraged.

The design for the project currently includes the following: Milling and resurfacing the existing roadway; widening the paved shoulders; designating bike lanes with pavement markings and signs; upgrading to mast arm traffic signals at the East Naples Fire Station and Manatee Road intersections, adding a signalized pedestrian crossing at Manatee Road intersection; adding Collier Area Transit bus stop enhancements both northbound and southbound at Manatee Road; upgrading signs and pavement markings; and making access management improvements. Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2011 with completion in spring 2013.

One or more members of the Collier County Board of County Commissioners may attend.
