NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
2040 Long Range Transportation Plan Amendments
CR 484: From CR 475A to Marion Oaks Pass
SW 49th Avenue From Marion Oaks Trail to Marion Oaks Manor
At the request of the Marion County Engineering department, the Ocala/Marion TPO will be amending the 2040 LRTP in order to include an additional roadway capacity project and amend the phasing of an additional existing project. This amendment is in coordination with Marion County’s application for grant funding for the Cross Florida Commerce Park with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s Florida Job Growth Fund.
The amendment proposes to widen approximately 1.34 miles of CR 484 to four lanes from the end of the current four-lane section near SW 47th Terrace to Marion Oaks Pass. Based on present day costs, estimates of the project phases would be as follows:
Design (PE) - $680,966
Right-of-Way (ROW) - $630,000
Construction (CST) – $4,993,750
The amendment also proposes to accelerate the construction funding timeframe for two projects to widen approximately 2.6 miles of SW 49th Avenue to four lanes from Marion Oaks Trail to Marion Oaks Manor. Based on present day costs, estimates of the project phases would be as follows:
Design (PE) - $1,340,000
Right-of-Way (ROW) - $3,525,000
Construction (CST) – $9,826,666
A comment period regarding these amendments to the 2040 LRTP is now open. This comment period will remain open until the public hearing to be conducted before the regularly scheduled Ocala/Marion County TPO Board meeting to be held on October 10th, 2017.
