The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) proposed to extend CR 1 from New York Avenue to US 19, a distance of approximately 2.41 kilometers (1.5 miles). This project is consistent with the 1991 Comprehensive Plan for Pasco County (dated July 16, 1991)/ This report is one element of a PD&E Study which examines in detail the engineering analysis of the proposed extension of CR 1 from New York Avenue to US 19.
A public information workshop was conducted on October 20, 1992 in the cafeteria of the Hudson High School, 14410 Cobra Way, Hudson, Florida. The workshop gave the public an opportunity to comment on the project, regarding specific location, proposed design, socio-economic effects, and possible environmental impacts. The public was able to review drawings of the conceptual design plans and the possible impacts to the area. All twelve (12) alternatives were presented at the workshop. Following the public information workshop, Alternatives 1 through 7 and 10 through 12 were eliminated from further consideration due to right-of-way cost and the number of potential relocations. Alternatives 8 and 9 were carried forward for further consideration.
CR 1 (Little Road) is a minor arterial roadway on the Pasco County Transportation System. CR 1 is located between Seven Springs Boulevard (CR 77) and New York Avenue, a distance of approximately 28.16 km (17.5 miles). The proposed extension will connect CR 1 to US 19 in the vicinity of Scheer Boulevard or Emerald Bouelvard, a distance of approximately 2.41 km (1.5 miles). CR 1 south of New York Avenue is a two (2) lane undivided rural roadway with one (1) 3.66 m (12 feet) wide travel lane in each direction located within 36.58 m (120 feet) of existing right-of-way.
