SR 70 Corridor Vision Plan - Public Survey

MetroQuest_SR70 MetroQuest Survey for Lakewood Ranch Residents

District 1 of the Florida Department of Transportation is developing a vision and action plan for the future of State Road 70. We’ve extended the Lakewood Ranch survey and the SR 70 Corridor Survey until July 6th to give residents a chance to provide their input.

We invite you to take two brief surveys: one about the corridor as a whole and one particular to the community most pertinent to you.

As a main connection between the east and gulf coasts of the state, the corridor supports a significant amount of interregional travel as well as freight and goods movement. The corridor also serves local functions in 5 communities in the Florida Heartland, including Lakewood Ranch, Myakka City, Arcadia, Lake Placid, and Okeechobee. The vision for the corridor will incorporate both corridor and community purposes and contexts, which is why there is a survey for the overall corridor and for each community.

To visit the project page please visit: http://www.swflroads.com/sr70corridorvisionplan/

To access the Lakewood Ranch survey please visit: https://lakewoodranchsr70.metroquest.com/ 

Your expertise, feedback, and ideas will help shape and inform the design and development of an integrated land use and transportation vision for the project corridor, guiding future multi-modal transportation investments and complementary land use policies.

We also invite you to share this survey with your contacts, so that the feedback informing the vision plan is as community-sourced as possible.

What Are Your Transportation Priorities?

2045-Cost-Feasible-LRTP-Cover

Share your transportation priorities and Drive The Future by taking a 3-5 minute survey at https://publicinput.com/K420.

The survey is open through July 1 and will be used to identify transportation priorities and define which programs and projects will be submitted to state and federal transportation departments for funding.

You can also pinpoint transportation needs at specific geographic locations by visitinghttps://publicinput.com/R083 and commenting on your community needs map.

Why should I take the survey?

In the next 25 years, almost $5 Billion will be invested in the Sarasota/Manatee transportation system. Your input provided in this survey will be used to identify the community’s top transportation priorities, which will shape funding and future transportation plans in Sarasota and Manatee County.

“We are in the final steps of the Long Range Transportation Plan process, which means the public’s opinion is more crucial than ever,” said David Hutchinson, MPO Executive Director.  “The MPO has received many comments from the public about transportation projects and priorities. This is your opportunity to tell us about your priorities, share your opinions, and identify what’s important to you before the plan is complete.”

The purpose of the 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is to develop future transportation facilities in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. The LRTP must consider the full complement of transportation modes – roads, bicycles, pedestrians, trails, transit, parking, railroads, and airports. The plan includes at least twenty years and must be updated every five years.

To learn more about the Sarasota/Manatee MPO Long Range Transportation Plan, make comments, and take the survey, visithttps://publicinput.com/R083. To go directly to the survey, visit: https://publicinput.com/K420.
