What is a PD&E study?
A Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study is a process followed by the FDOT to evaluate social, economic, and environmental impacts associated with a planned transportation improvement project. FDOT established the PD&E process as the state's procedure for complying with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969.
What is being studied?
The interchange of I-95 at 6th Avenue South in the City of Lake Worth in Palm Beach County is being studied. The study is looking at improvements to both I-95, from north of 12th Avenue South to south of Lake Worth Road, as well as to 6th Avenue South, from Michigan Avenue to South C Street. Improvements for cars, trucks, bicycles, and pedestrians will be considered.
Why is this study being conducted?
A review of the I-95 interchanges in Palm Beach County, documented in the I-95 Interchange Master Plan for Palm Beach County completed in December 2014, identified the need for improvements to better serve today's travelers as well as those in the year 2040.
How can I get involved?
Public involvement throughout the PD&E Study will be continuous. In addition to two public meetings and a public hearing, you are encouraged to provide comments via email, mail, or through this website. Our goal is to ensure that the public is engaged in the development of alternatives that will be considered and in the selection of the preferred alternative. Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status.
