Withlacoochee-Dunnellon Trail Connector Public Open House

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting a public open house regarding the upcoming Withlacoochee-Dunnellon Trail Connector construction project (Financial Project Number 437349-152-01).

This project involves building a multi-use trail connecting the Withlacoochee State Trail to the Dunnellon Trail. The new trail includes a pedestrian crossing at US 41 near CR 39 in Citrus County.

The Department’s contractor, Commercial Industrial Corp. has proposed an alternate design for the pedestrian crossing that will save the Department over $1 million in combined construction and utility costs. Graphics showing both the Department’s original design and the Contractor’s proposed design will be available for review at the open house. Public comment is encouraged.

The open house will be from 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday, October 14, 2019, at the Citrus Springs Community Center, Building B, 1570 W. Citrus Springs Boulevard, Citrus Springs, FL 34434.

There will be no formal presentation; therefore, we encourage you to drop in at your convenience during the above listed hours to review the project display boards and speak with project staff.

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.
