Polk transportation planners seek comments on long-range plan

September 17, 2015 News

Polk transportation planners have put together a vision of what the county’s future transportation system could look like and now they’re looking for the public’s reaction.

The plan called Momentum 2040 will be the topic of a meeting 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Winter Haven Public Library, 325 Ave. A NW. Additional meetings are scheduled Oct. 1 at the Lakeland Public Library and Oct. 6 at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office substation on Dunson Road. Times have not been announced.

In addition, Polk County Transportation Planning Organization staffers will have a booth at the Lakeland Hispanic Festival on Oct. 24.

The plan, which can be viewed online at polktpo.com, includes information on planned road, transit and bicycle/pedestrian safety programs.

TPO endorsed the plan, which was last updated in 2010, at its regular meeting today and will consider adopting the plan at its December meeting.
