The Florida Department of Transportation recently updated its Five-Year Work Program webpage for the Colonial/Lee Boulevard to Shawnee Road segment of the State Road 82 widening project. According to the FDOT’s update, appraisals for properties needed for the Colonial/Lee Boulevard to Shawnee Road segment of the widening project are scheduled for January 31, 2014 through June 20, 2014. Negotiations for this segment of the State Road 82 widening project are scheduled to begin May 23, 2014. If FDOT’s updated schedule holds, offers from the FDOT to property owners can be expected at about that time.
The FDOT update shows $2,893,219 for right-of-way acquisition in fiscal year 2014 and $3,539,131 for right-of-way acquisition in fiscal year 2015. It’s important to note that the FDOT website for the Colonial/Lee Boulevard to Alabama Road segment continues to state: “The right-of-way acquisition phase is expected to begin early in 2014, although this phase is not currently funded.”
