The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a PD&E study to evaluate the proposed future widening of 18 miles of S.R. 29 from S.R. 82 in Collier County, north to County Road (C.R.) 80A in Hendry County.

Need for the Project
The need to evaluate the proposed widening of S.R. 29 from the existing two lanes to four lanes is supported by the following:
  • S.R. 29 is a designated hurricane evacuation route.
  • S.R. 29 is a part of Florida’s Strategic Intermodal System.
  • Traffic volumes on S.R. 29 are projected to increase from a current volume of 6,200 vehicles per day to 23,800 vehicles per day by the year 2035 as documented in the project traffic report.
Purpose of PD&E Study
The objective of the PD&E study is to provide documented information necessary for FDOT to reach a decision on the type, design and location of improvements to S.R. 29 for acceptance by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
