Miami, Florida — The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Six has scheduled a public hearing regarding the proposed enhancements to I-395 from the Midtown Interchange (I-95/SR 836/I-395) to the MacArthur Causeway in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at the Lyric Theater, 819 N.W. 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida. The hearing will begin as an open house from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.
This hearing is being held to allow interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design; and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed enhancements to this segment of Interstate 395. The need for enhancements is based on a combination of substandard traffic conditions, urban planning objectives and the interaction with other planned facility enhancements impacting the proposed project area. Project objectives include the study of the following issues: increase capacity to prevent existing and future traffic congestion, improve safety by alleviating existing deficiencies, explore access issues and establish proper continuity.
The Draft Environmental Impact Statement along with other pertinent information developed by the Department will be available for public review on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from Tuesday, August 4, 2009 to Tuesday, September 1, 2009 at the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Community Outreach Office, 939 N.W. 3rd Avenue, Miami, Florida. These materials will also be available at the hearing site from 6 p.m. until the end of the hearing. Persons desiring to submit written statements and other exhibits, in place of or in addition to oral statements, may do so at the hearing or by sending them to: Vilma Croft, P.E, Project Manager, at FDOT District Six, 1000 N.W. 111th Avenue, Room 6111A, Miami, Florida 33172. All exhibits or statements postmarked on or before September 4, 2009 will become a part of the public hearing record.
