FDOT schedules Island meeting on projects

The Florida Department of Transportation scheduled a public meeting from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 16, at St. Bernard Catholic Church, 248 S. Harbor Drive, Holmes Beach, to discuss upcoming construction projects.

A DOT press release said the discussions will include projects funded under the federal stimulus plan and other construction projects planned on Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key.

DOT and construction company representatives, including project managers, will be at the meeting to provide information on each project and the projected impact to the public.

The projects include roadway resurfacing, bridge painting and maintenance, sidewalk construction and landscaping.

 Some of the projects began in October. The DOT said all construction should be completed by Spring 2010.

Two previously scheduled DOT public meetings on the stimulus-funded projects were canceled.
