The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) conducted a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study to evaluate alternative improvements for US 41 (SR 45) from Kracker Avenue (milepoint 15.784) to south of SR 676 (Causeway Boulevard – milepoint 22.791) in Hillsborough County, a distance of approximately 7.0 miles. Study objectives included: determining proposed typical sections and developing preliminary conceptual design plans for proposed improvements, while minimizing impacts to the environment; considering agency and public comments; and ensuring project compliance with all applicable federal and state laws. Improvement alternatives were identified which will improve safety and satisfy future transportation demand. A State Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) was prepared for this study.
The objective of this Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study was to assist the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in reaching a decision on the type, location, and conceptual design of the proposed improvements for widening US 41 (SR 45) from Kracker Avenue to south of Causeway Boulevard (SR 676). The PD&E study satisfied all applicable requirements in order for this project to qualify for state funding of subsequent development phases (design, right of way [ROW] acquisition, and construction).
US 41 is a major north-south arterial of regional significance that parallels Interstate 75 (I-75) and US 301 in Hillsborough County. This project was screened through FDOT’s Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) process as Project #5180. A Final Programming Screen Summary Report was published on April 10, 2013. A State Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) was prepared as part of this study.
