The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is hosting a Virtual Public Workshop to review design plans for the I-4 wildlife crossing located in northeast Lakeland. A map showing the project limits is above. The workshop will be held completely online on the project website, SWFLroads.com/I4/wildlifecrossing; with no live component.
As a commitment made from previous environmental studies, one wildlife crossing will be located approximately 1.6 miles east of the I-4/SR 33 interchange with the intended purpose of connecting the Tenoroc Management Area to the south. The wildlife crossing will consist of a 44-foot wide bridge crossing over I-4. The Virtual Public Workshop is being held before design plans are finalized.
Workshop materials will be available online for people to review and to provide comments. These materials will be available as part of the Virtual Public Workshop which will last for 21 days; from Tuesday, May 25, 2021, through Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
