MONROE COUNTY — Monroe County is preparing a Transportation Master Plan to provide future direction for U.S. 1 within the Florida Keys. Due to technical issues during the first public outreach meeting in September, an additional meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Nov. 12 via Zoom webinar. The goal of this meeting is to gain input and feedback from locals and visitors on transportation issues.
The objective of the study is to identify transportation needs, develop goals and objectives, and develop an action plan to meet those goals. The action plan will identify potential short-term solutions (1-5 years), mid-term (6-10 years) and long-term solutions (10-20 years).
These solutions may include roadway, signal, signage and marking improvements to address traffic issues and/or multimodal solutions addressing the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and public transit.
