Lee County MPO to hold public hearing

By Staff | May 14, 2024

The Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization Board will hold a public hearing on May 17 at 9 a.m. in Room 118 at the Lee County Administration East Building, at 2201 Second St., Fort Myers, to consider adopting the fiscal year 2024-25 and 2025-26 Unified Planning Work Program. The UPWP is the MPO’s budget.

The hearing will also include the review and approval of the updated Federal and State Priority List.

The final item includes Transportation Improvement Program amendments to remove two Cape Coral bridge projects that are no longer deficient and therefore are not eligible for federal bridge funding.

The MPO board will also consider the following: updated Shared-Use Non-motorized (SUN) Trail Priority List; and Lee and Collier and Lee and Charlotte-Punta Gorda Transportation Regional Incentive Program (TRIP) Priorities. A review of the draft five-year Transportation Improvement Program that includes federal- and state-funded transportation projects in Lee will also be provided.
