The expansion of S.R. 29 from C.R. 80A (Cowboy Way) to U.S. 27 is consistent with Glades & Hendry Counties adopted Growth Management Plans. This evaluation is necessary due to the ongoing population and employment growth in and around the study area. The provision of safe and efficient transportation to support this growth requires action to improve the existing transportation network.
The objective of the PD&E Study is to provide documented information necessary for FDOT to reach a decision on the type, design, and location of improvements to S.R. 29 for acceptance by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
