Pasco MPO to host Public Vision 54/56 Task Force Meeting 4/20

The Pasco County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is hosting a public Vision 54/56 Task Force Meeting to continue evaluating transportation solutions for the State Road 54/56 Corridor, from U.S. 19 to Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.  Anyone interested in the Vision 54/56 Study is invited to attend.  Citizens will be able to listen to the task force discussion and take part in a public comment session.

This study is designed to determine the best solutions for addressing congestion, safety and mobility along the SR 54/56 Corridor.  During Phase 1, the task force recommended 6 major highway and transit alternatives, 5 complementary alternatives and 1 do-nothing alternative.  The MPO Board approved these alternatives for further evaluation in Phase 2 of the study.

During Phase 2, the task force will take a more detailed look at the recommended alternatives and complementary alternatives to ultimately select the preferred alternatives that support the vision for the SR 54/56 corridor.
